Open Reading

Open readings have always been an integral part of The Poetry Project’s programming. They provide a time and space for writers of all levels of experience to test, fine tune, and work out their writing and reading styles in front of a supportive audience.

Readers must register in advance, with a cap of 20 readers per Open Reading. To register, or if you have questions about The Poetry Project’s Open Readings, please email Laura Henriksen at

All 20 slots have been claimed for this event. Stay tuned for our next Open Reading in February!

Open Readings are free.
