Voz Sin Tinta - Poetry Reading Series second Thursday of every month @ 6:30pm
The event is FREE and everyone is welcome to witness art as energy. Each reading will be curated with no foreknowledge of how any one performance will unfold. Like ink blots spread on the page in unexpected ways, weʼll make somethings out of nothings, imprint the air with our voices, inhale interruptions, and crosshatch separate lines.
Voz Sin Tinta is Curated by Marguerite Muñoz
Sponsored by San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguía and Alley Cat Books
