Livewire is for writers and storytellers who would like to read or perform their work in front of others. Each month we will be located in a public space such as a bar, coffee shop or bookstore. There, typically in front of a microphone, a certain number of members will read their poetry, short stories, essays, portion of longer work, or tell a life story.

This is a safe space where freedom of expression is appreciated. As artists, sometimes we flirt with the lines of taboo and uncomfortable situations. Art is successful if it evokes any emotion in its audience. However, intentionally hateful or abusive speech is not part of Livewire's purpose and will not be tolerated.

Every month with have a general theme to which the reading should somehow relate. Some examples of themes could be: panic, elation, fury, justice, etc.

Each member wishing to participate in a Livewire reading will submit their work to a group leader who will work to fit you into the schedule. Group leaders may have suggestions with regard to length of work.

Member dues assist with equipment, such as speaker, microphone, etc and rental/ deposit fees for venues. Finally, Livewire is limited to 50 active individuals. Group leaders may determine through participation who remains in the group. Non group members are still welcome to attend events and submit work.
