Open Mouth Presents: A Reading with Jen Karetnick & Sumita Chakraborty

December 13, 2020 at 7:00 PM CDT via Zoom

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!


Our Zoom programming may not be forever, but we're updating how we do things. We're working on creating sustainable, inclusive, and accessible programming that will apply to all of our future readings and workshops. Here are some steps we are taking:


  • Captions for all virtual readings and video recordings

  • Image descriptions for all images posted on social media

  • Updated accessible website design and layout (coming soon)

  • Access recordings of workshops via our YouTube channel or Patreon account if you can't make the workshop time

  • Solely work with accessible spaces once we can meet in person again


Have an idea about how Open Mouth can be more accessible for you? Please contact us and share your thoughts!
