Second Tuesday Poetry Readings

On the second Tuesday of each month, we hold a poetry reading followed by an open mic at the Barkin’ Dog Grill, 940 11th Street, Modesto.

 

Poetry House Calls

One of the missions of MoSt Poetry Center is to bring poetry to groups who can’t easily come out to our poetry readings. If you know of a senior center/living facility or a school or other group who would like MoSt poets to come in and give a reading or workshop. Contact us at info@mostpoetry.org with questions or information.
