CANCELLED or, say rather, postponed. We’ll invite these two Great Poets back soon!
5 S Summit Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20877
Please feel free to bring a poem to share at the Open Mic following the Featured Readers (one page maximum). Hope to see you there!
In case of rain, it will be rescheduled. In case of cold, bundle up! Rain or shine! Java Junction has indoor seating, but hopefully we’ll be outside in the sun! Hope to see you there!
