Welcome to our Poets' Corner Page
In the spring of 2019, fellow poets and writers came together to bring an open mic series to Tompkins Corner Cultural Center. This monthly event has brought together an impressive group of talent and excitement.
We meet once a month on Sunday's from 3-5pm and open with a fine featured poet. After the feature, the mic opens for those who wish to read. We ask a $5 donation and request 5 minutes maximum for reading. Open to writers of all types. Please sign up when you arrive.
Having our poetry readings in the historic converted church of Tompkins Corners is such a joy. The stage is welcoming and atmosphere warm as voices ring out to the vaulted ceilings and throughout the pews. TCCC has restored the building lovingly and complete a stage complete with lighting.
In warm weather, we occasionally have our readings outdoors in the shade on the grassy knoll with a forest behind us. Refreshments are served and welcomed!
We welcome readers and writers of all stripes; poets, storytellers, novelists more. Professionals and novices' have come to try something new or read from their new books. Join us in this beautiful center with our growing literary group. And bring your friends!
