POETRY ARCADE

We are pleased to invite you to Season Two of Poetry Arcade, a free poetry event Hosted by Shwa Laytart, and presented by Avantpop Bookstore. Now a two-day event!

 

We work with some outstanding poets. We want to highlight not only the talented poets that have been (and slated to be) published in the Avantpop Punk Poetry Antholozine, but also a number of talented poets throughout Las Vegas. We also want to give them an opportunity to be compensated for their words and for their performance. Be a patron of the local arts!

 

So how does Poetry Arcade work? A series of poets will read their work on stage. Much like an arcade, tokens can be purchased at Avantpop Bookstore that can then be used after hearing each reading. Patrons can select their favorite poets and give them tokens as a gift of gratitude, like poetry busking! Also, exchange tokens for a personal, recorded reading with a poet in the Avantpop Bookstore Podcast Room.  At the end of the event, the poets redeem their tokens for cash. 

 

We hope that you join us for what is sure to be an exciting, thought-provoking, and unique experience.  

This is a free event, but we request that you RSVP and purchase token packs! Attend both days or choose the day that works best for you.
