Second Sunday Poetry Series


We showcase three poets a month, and they are each allotted a fifteen minute set. Kindly submit a set totaling 15 minutes, allowing time for comments before and during your poetry set. Please time your set before submitting. The idea is not to cram as many poems into 15 minutes as you can--this is difficult for the listeners--but to show an array of your work at a breathable pace.

The set you send me should be the actual set you want to read, not just a sample of your work. This reading is curated, so each piece has to be approved to be read. *No/very little profanity or graphic/grotesque images—this is a restaurant, and we would love for people to stay for dinner afterwards.

* This series accepts poetry only-- no fiction, prose, translations, etc. *

Please email all poems in one attachment to:
In the subject line please write “Poetry Submission”

We accept submissions on a rolling basis. We are booked through September, so we are now considering readers for October and beyond. Please spread the word!

I look forward to reading your work!
