About the Event
“Words in the Garden” was a weekly, summer literary reading series from the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH) and the Eureka Springs Carnegie Library. It was a well-attended presentation of diverse genres from writers from close to home and across the country. At 4:30 pm on Wednesday, September 15, “Words in the Garden” will culminate in an open mic night under the tent in the Eureka Springs Carnegie Library Garden at 188 Spring Street (south of the Carnegie Library Gardens Building). The event is free, and all are welcome to what is sure to be a lively afternoon of poetry, prose, and song. This will be a supportive environment, the perfect setting for first-time readers or the premier of new work.
Registration is not required, but those wishing to present should arrive promptly to sign up for a time slot. Readings will start at 4:35 and end by 5:35. Up to twelve presenters may share their work for up to five minutes. Time limits will be strictly enforced to allow all writers the chance to present their work.
Since opening its doors to writers in 2000, the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow has made a lasting impact on the arts and literary communities through its mission to nurture writers of all genres, backgrounds, and levels of experience in a supportive atmosphere that builds community, energizes creative expression, stimulates new thinking, and optimizes productivity. The WCDH has hosted over 1,700 writers from 48 states and 13 countries. For more information, please visit www.writerscolony.org or call Michelle Hannon at (479)253-7444.
