We are beginning the fall season of Writers Read Ukiah with a round-robin poetry reading from our Poets Laureate, to be followed by an open mic during which readers will have the opportunity to hear a poem “response” to their offerings. We are squirreling away our nuts for the coming winter.

This reading series is sponsored in part by Poets & Writers, through a grant from the James Irvine Foundation. Additional support provided by Art Center Ukiah, an anonymous local writer, and donations. For information, contact Bill Churchill:
