Ozark Poets & Writers Collective

  • Nightbird Books 205 West Dickson Street Fayetteville, AR, 72701 United States (map)

All ages are welcome at OPWC. It meets the last Tuesday of every month at 7pm. An open mic is a vital part of the evening. Each open mic performer gets up to four minutes to read original works or verse written by others. Our audiences famously encourage open mic readers. The main feature as well as the open mikers perform censorship free; strong language is sometimes used. After the guest reader, a hat is passed to provide the guest a small stipend and to help fund future readings. The collective has been honored with donation of a new book of poetry every month from the University of Arkansas Press — and the raffle is free! Often, featured readers offer their own books and chapbooks (and sometimes CDs and DVDs) for sale, autographed.
