LitKicks Poetry Happenings & Live Events

Live poetry readings are an important part of LitKicks. We bring together poets and fiction writers who post to our boards as well as special guests and visiting musicians. We've been honored to hear from some really amazing personalities at past LitKicks readings, such as David Amram, Bob Holman, Richard Hell, Lee Ranaldo, Nicole Blackman, John S. Hall and (in his live performance debut) John Cassady. Many LitKicks poets have also performed at our readings, which are open to beginners as well as experienced performers.

Here are the reports from a few of our most notable past excesses. Click on the pictures for detailed summaries of the crazed goings-on ...

A few of our other get-togethers:

Our favorite place to do poetry readings is the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City because it's just a real good place (and NY City is pretty much our home base). The Eclectic Gallery, a friendly art gallery in Battle Creek, Michigan, is our #1 home away from home. We hope to be doing more locations in the near future, including our first shows in the South and in California.
