About Poetry in the Brew

Hello! Please allow us to introduce ourselves: we’re Poetry in the Brew! Since 2011, we’ve hosted poetry readings based in Nashville, TN. In 2020, we moved to international online open mics. We also produce special events, and for our 10th anniversary, we celebrated the release of Sinew: 10 Years of Poetry in the Brew (2021, April Gloaming Publishing).

On the 2nd Saturday of the month, we gather in the loft of Portland Brew East at 1921 Eastland Ave.

Host Christine Hall has organized the Brew since 2014. Even before we went online, we welcomed visitors from all over the world. We are thankful to the poets, spoken word artists, and storytellers who gather and share with brave vulnerability, good humor, and deep insight.
