Poetry Night takes place at John Natsoulas Center for the Arts every first and third Thursday of the month.
Guests are invited to arrive early (by 7:45pm) to sign up for a spot on the open mic that will follow the readings by our featured authors. The open mic list is usually full by 8 PM. Please bring your poems, short stories, monologues, and songs. Performers with instruments are especially welcomed. Participants will be asked to limit their performances to five minutes or two items, whichever is shorter. The Poetry Night Reading Series is hosted by Davis poet laureate Dr. Andy Jones, and is supported by live piano performances by local musician Jason Mak, as well as by Dr. Andy’s interns.
