Don't Miss Out on Events

Thanks to the Poets & Writers Local app you'll be opening the door to creative people that want to share their passion of writing. The app works by providing you with information about author events and readings that are happening near you. These events may take place at a cafe, library, bookstore, at a school, or any other place. These events can sometimes be hard to find information on because they aren’t always big events with plenty of advertising. By using the app you’ll be ensuring that you won’t miss out on events that interest you.
