Readings are scheduled for the 4th Wednesday of each month (except for December and August). Events feature a reading by one or more well-published writers, followed by an Open Mic at which anyone is welcome to read something of their own or a favorite poem.


On the second Wednesday of the month, we hold a relaxed and informal poetry workshop. Anyone is welcome to participate. At a workshop you are encouraged to present a poem you are working on for positive and constructive comments by your peers. We hold workshops online via Zoom. Write us at cwpoetrycircle@gmail.com to receive the link on the day before the workshop). Read the guidelines for our poetry workshops HERE.
