The idea for the forum emerged out of a local writers workshop in San Jose, CA where members routinely read their work aloud. We noticed that although the South Bay has a wealth of poetry reading events, there was not a regular spoken word venue for fiction. If up to now, you’ve only written and published, but never read in public, we encourage you to join us. This platform allows the writers to get an immediate response to their work. Join us and expose your fiction!
