Cholla Needles has an open poetry reading the second Sunday of every month to celebrate the publication of each issue. Mark your calendars and/or subscribe to our announcements by adding your email address on the small box to the right. Our goal is to allow everyone who shows up an opportunity to read, so please be cognizant of time restraints when selecting material to read. The open reading time is available to the entire community =:-)

Two months per year we will have open reading during the entire time. The other ten month we will have an featured reader for an extended amount of time in addition to the open reading!
