Celebration Series

Day of the Dead Celebration:

An evening celebrating Day of the Dead with music, dancing with the Calpulli Iskal dancers, a reading, and a table of native foods including sugar skulls for everyone to take home. Xanath Caraza and World's Window provide altars.  It's a festive night of fun.

LGBT Reading:

This event provides opportunity for both established and emerging writers with a reading of multiple genres: fiction, nonfiction, memoir, poetry, drama, music, and visual art.


Recovery Reading:

This reading is an afternoon of readings by anyone suffering from addiction or living with someone with addiction. First Call partners with The Writers Place for this event.


Poetry + Jazz at the Westport Coffeehouse Theater: 

Four times a year, The Writers Place and River Cow Orchestra partner to provide an improvisational program of poetry and jazz featuring members of the band (Brent Bowman, Greg Field, E.E. Pointer, Christina Ng, George Bugie, Michael LaGrega, and Ryan Jones) and area poets. Occasionally dancers from Kansas City Contemporary Dance join us.
