Out Loud Poetry & Prose Reading
Now at Downtown Central Perk in Davenport

(see Location below for details)


About Out Loud

During Out Loud evenings, attendees have the opportunity to share their poetry or prose.  Sometimes we will have guest readers.  Out Loud meets on the final Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. Listeners are also welcome.


We will choose a selection of the month , every month.  This selection is published on our website.  
We will choose a piece of the year from all of the monthly selections and honor an Out Loud poem of the year at our annual meeting.
