Poetry and Reading Events

Each year HMAP hosts annual spring and fall poetry reading and open mic events. Participation is not limited to HMAP members.

For information contact master of ceremonies Luther Jett.

The visual arts, with their paintings and sculpture and other attention commanding sights can seem to be more captivating than the “spoken and writen word” but HMAP seeks to give literary enthusiast members just recognition.

To involve the greater area community in literary events, HMAP holds several reading events throughout the year, sometimes in conjunction with art exhibitions, and invites the participation of readers of poetry, novels, short stories and essays as well as other forms of writing such as articles and screen plays. Presenters may of course read from their own creations or they may interpret the works of the famous, infamous and not so famous writers of the past or present day. Some events also include performance art and musical presentations.
