Second Sunday Poetry Series


We showcase three poets a month, and they are each allotted a 15-18 minute set.

Kindly submit a set totaling 15-18 minutes, which includes comments before and during your poetry set. Please time your set before submitting. The idea is not to cram as many poems into the time 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 must 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 document to:

In the subject line please write “Poetry Submission” and put your name on each page.

We accept submissions on a rolling basis. We are booked several months in advance.

I look forward to reading your work!
