Bonehouse Poetry Reading
Once again we're inviting all poetry-loving (or even just poetry-curious) Dallasites to enjoy an afternoon of verse mixing memory and desire, for a poetry reading, featuring: Reverie Koniecki, Tom Farris, Paul Koniecki, Amos J. Hunt, Matthew Duffy, & a beautiful audience (if you come)


Our unique round-robin presentation, in which each poet chooses and introduces a poem by one of the others, shines a light on crafted, striking words, not personalities. Our goal is always for the audience to take hold of the poetry as something that belongs to them. More info: Click here.

Start your poetry evening here & move on to Verse and Rhythm
at Oak Cliff Cultural Center at 7pm.
