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 is now accepting applications for our 2020 generative writing retreat with faculty members torrin a. greathouse and Jake Skeets. Click here to learn more or go directly to the application by clicking here.

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.
If you'd like to help us make sure poets reach our community, you can donate via PayPal, sign up to give regularly on Patreon, or contribute to our traveling poets fund on GoFundMe. Every little bit counts!
