words on fire: poetry happy hour


Words on Fire is our youngest event, a week night “poetry happy hour” held approximately every other month at Firehouse Theatre since September of 2015. Each event features a showcase reading by a poet from our community as well as an open mic. Participants and guests alike are encouraged to mingle, sip, and be inspired.

Firehouse has a cash bar serving beer/wine, sodas & light snacks. The event has a $5 cover.

You can check out clips from our July 2017 event filmed by Bill Glose on YouTube at Virginia Poetry Online.
