Pittsburgh Poetry Review Summer Roadshow


We’re happy to announce the schedule for the Pittsburgh Poetry Review Summer Roadshow series!

Readings will all be held on Thursday nights at Nied’s Hotel, 5438 Butler St, Pittsburgh, PA 15201 in Upper Lawrenceville, in their outdoor amphitheater, weather permitting. Otherwise, we will be in the spacious dining room next door.

Each evening will begin with a “social hour” beginning at 6:00 PM, with readings to begin promptly at 7:00. There will also be an open mic for up to 5 readers for 2 minutes each. Copies and subscriptions of the Pittsburgh Poetry Review will be available at a special “Roadshow Exclusive” discount.

The readers, except for the special “Slam Night” event, are all past, current, or future PPR contributors, with many fine poets traveling from as far away as Cincinnati, Washington DC, Boston, and Knoxville, Tennessee to be with us, along with many of your local favorites!

We hope you’ll all join us for hot fish, cold beer, and extremely cool poetry!
