Red Tree Readings

Red Tree Reading Series is a monthly poetry reading with an open mic portion followed by a featured reader. 5 min time limit for open mic.

We host our readings at The Abbey in Cumberland (2687 Penrith – entrance on 1st) on the 3rd Sunday of the month @ 7 pm – doors @ 6:30pm. The Abbey is a quiet space perfect for the intimate act of listening to poetry.

Readings take place Sept, Nov, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May. The Cascadia Poetry Festival takes place the first weekend of October.
