Dragonfly Poetry Reading & Gallery Walk

Experience the power of words and art… reflections of life, love, trauma, social justice, renewal, and hope.


About this event

Please join us for the annual Dragonfly Poetry Reading and Gallery Walk as we celebrate the publishing of the 2022 Dragonfly Arts Magazine. This free VIRTUAL event will feature local visual artists and poets’ work, offering reflections on life, love, trauma, justice, renewal, and hope. This evening provides a dynamic opportunity to experience the power of words and the vital role that the arts provide in promoting healing, awareness, and change.

Poets who have been published in any issue of the Dragonfly Arts Magazine are eligible to read at the event. Register to read or RSVP your attendance by emailing dragonfly@hopeworksofhc.org. Please indicate your name, title, and the year it was published in Dragonfly.

Open Mic

If time permits, the general public may have the opportunity to read as part of a poetry open mic following the Dragonfly Poetry Reading and Gallery Walk. Sign-up for the open mic will be at the time of the event.

Work must be related to the magazine’s themes of relationships, love, self-esteem, trauma, social justice, hope, or the process of self-renewal.
