Local Writers Reading Original Works


Authors in Pubs is a 'First Monday' event that brings local writers into a bar, restaurant, or wherever and allows them to share their work with the patrons. This helps boost the confidence of the writer by getting first hand feedback on his/her work. We started in September, 2011 and the crowd has steadily grown so that we recently moved to a larger venue. The show runs about two hours and we invite you to show up early and stay after to talk with the writers or possibly buy their book. If you would like to contribute at a future event, please contact me in advance about being added to our current stable of writers. thanks, Don

The May 6th show was wild. Some big Tri-Met SNAFU had me scrambling as authors arrived at crazy times. The reading were great and the band, The Consort Symbiotic played an extra long 'farwell' set. They are super busy with work and the 'other' band they play in. Thanks guys.
