Haven Reading Series

The Haven Reading Series is the main event for our members to share their poetry in front of a supportive audience in an atmosphere both friendly and inviting. The series runs from September to March on Monday evenings online.

Each Haven features four Stroll members who have signed up for their 8-minute reading in advance. Each Haven also features a two-minute Open Mic. The Open Mic is always popular for new and existing members alike. It’s a chance to practice ahead of a scheduled reading or an important way for first timers to feel welcome (and get them hooked on the Stroll!). We do our best to prioritize new readers or first time readers.

The Haven is open to all attend and listen.
