Events

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 =:-)



In April each year year we will have open reading during the entire time. In November we will have special events to allow the public to purchase personalized signed books directly from the a local author. Perfect gift for holiday happenings! The other ten months we will have an featured reader for an extended amount of time in addition to the open reading! 

Special Note: October 2018 has been moved to the first Sunday of October so we do not conflict with the yearly Artist Tours of the Morongo/Mojave area! Thank you for your understanding!

Special Note: November 2018 Our "Meet The Local Writers" Tour will take place in 3 venues on three different weekends. Check here in mid September for updates on dates, times, and venues! Save the dates!
