Maitland Public Library regularly sponsors writing and poetry programs.
Spend a relaxing Friday night filled with coffee and poetry, often facilitated by acclaimed poet, writer, and editor Elaine Person. Read an original poem of your own or just sit back with coffee and enjoy.
Poetry during the first hour is typically suitable for poets of all ages. After the midpoint, some poems may have adult themes not suitable for all listeners.
Upcoming Poetry Coffeehouse Nights:
