Pop-up Poetry @ Sweetwaters
Come join us - read, listen, and delve into the meaning of poetry! Expect a judgement-free, supportive space to share your work, or respectively enjoy that of others. Positive critique is welcomed! Consider bringing 3-5 poems to share, within a 10-15 minute set. Bring your practiced voice - Sweetwaters has great acoustics, but the Community Table is a space to share with the entire cafe. Set space will be offered based on arrival, so come early if you'd like. Sweetwaters is a comfortable, community inspired cafe, nestled in the Walnut Creek Arts District, with delicious seasonal teas and coffees from around the world, housemade ginger fizz, and yummy snacks and pastries. Parking is FREE on Wednesdays after 5pm in the Locust Street Garage, next door to the Lesher Center for the Arts; only one block from Sweetwaters.

Finally, an outlet to share our creativity! Come join us - read, listen, and delve into the meaning of poetry! Expect a judgement-free, supportive space to share your work, or respectively enjoy that of others. Positive critique is welcomed!

For all Walnut Creek Poetry Meetups, consider bringing 1-2 pieces to share. It's always nice to read along, so consider bringing copies of your work for all the other poets. There may be time to share more or less pieces, depending on attendance and location.
