Poetry Inspired by Art!

Richmond VA 23220
7:00 - 9:00

RUN TELL THAT is a quarterly poetry reading series in Richmond, Virginia featuring poets whose work troubles the public/private, individual/collective “I.” Named after & situated in the tradition of “storying” in the South, this series understands all American letters to be necessarily shaped by the South’s public/private, individual/collective I’s. Here, the slow-mouthed ghosts sing.
