The Willits Community Theatre will host a “long form” open reading at the Playhouse on Saturday, May 11. The reading will begin at 7 P.M.  In this reading, the time limit will be pushed outward to 15 minutes. According to event coordinator Mike A’Dair, that means that poets may read longer works.

“A lot of times, poets are forced by the shorter time constraints of most readings to read short poems or a number of short poems. This longer time limit will allow poets to read poems that they rarely are given an opportunity to read in public. I hope local poets will take advantage of this opportunity,” A’Dair said. He added that poets may read a large number of shorter poems if they wish to.

Entry to this reading is by donation; however no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. This reading is sponsored by the Willits Community Theatre’s 2024 season underwriters NC Financial Group and The Sparetime Garden Center. The WCT Playhouse is located at 37 Van Lane in beautiful downtown Willits.
