Morgantown Poets hosts a monthly event from 7-9 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month at Monongalia Arts Center (beside Hotel Morgan). These events at the MAC are free and open to the public, providing literary enthusiasts the opportunity to express themselves, share their work, network and to connect up-and-coming writers with more established authors. New writers are welcome. Events usually begin with a presentation by a featured author followed by an open reading by participants/attendees (sign up sheet, first-come-first-served).
