Every year, the Community of Writers puts on a number of readings and events that are open to the public, many for no charge (and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds). We ask that you reserve in advance for special events* and, if possible, for our other events as well (but walk-ins are okay for the free events, too). Reserve in advance here!


(For information about our annual Poetry Benefit Reading in San Francisco on June 20, 2014, please visit our Benefit page.)
