Do you have a poem you want to share? Step on up to the open mic… & connect with the Words Dance community, we’d love to meet you!

Friends, books + magazines for sale, drinks & fun… an all night show at Mahall’s 20 Lanes (you can check out their Facebook page here too!)

This FREE event will take place right after the release of Issue 14 (Hello Release Party!) where you will be one of the first to get your hands on print issues PLUS this marks the 10th year Words Dance has been publishing poetry!

We will also be recording some of the performances & rolling those videos out on the blog throughout the rest of the year…

If you live ‘cross the country & can’t make the show — & you’d like to help us out with the production of those by donating any spare change you may have, it will not only help us out with that BUT it will also help out with treating our poets to some travel & performance moolah for their lovingly awesome work & entertainment.

Deep gratitude to Mac’s Backs-Books on Coventry for their support, if you are local, you will be able to check out some of the readers’ books there in a couple weeks (check out their Facebook page here.)

Please feel free to share this event with anyone that may want to take part or with those that just want to come, watch & hang out!

We’ll see you there!


If you are coming from out of town & you are not planning to stay with friends or family. Below, you will find links to 3 hotels & a hostel that are super-close to the venue, but most importantly, the hotels have good reviews on several sites & the hostel comes recommended by locals.

The Cleveland Hostel – not pictured above – around 6 miles away.

Plus there are a few Bed & Breakfasts in the area that you can look into if you want!
