The Open Mouth Reading Series is a community-based poetry series located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. We host a monthly reading featuring poets whose work we love. We also host an annual fall festival, workshops, and a summer poetry retreat featuring visiting faculty.
We are a federal 501(c)(3) non-profit, and every dollar you contribute goes toward providing additional programming to the Northwest Arkansas community. We hope you’ll take part in our vision!
Open Mouth's programming continues to grow every year, and we'll soon be able to announce the lineup for the first half of 2020! In the past several months, we've been in touch with wonderful authors who want to visit Arkansas for the first time, but have had to turn us down because we can't provide travel funding. All our current funding goes to paying reader stipends, and expenses related to hosting and to special programs. That's why we're launching a travel funding campaign! Our goal is to raise $6,000 by the end of January 2020, which would enable us to pay for flights and/or gas mileage for every visiting writer in the coming year.
