This May, Discover Downtown Temple invites you to The Word, a monthly open mic poetry night, hosted at J Kowboy Wine Bar (13 E. Avenue B) in downtown Temple. The Word will take place on Wednesday, June 27th at 7:00 p.m. The Word is FREE and open to the public, but drinks are purchased on your own.


“Have you ever wanted to share your favorite poems in front of an audience in a public setting,” asked Nancy Glover with Temple’s Convention and Visitors Center. “Come out and share some original works or just read some of your favorite passages for all to enjoy! Everyone is welcome.”


Discover Downtown hosts this monthly poetry night as an effort to help foster a creative atmosphere as Temple’s downtown continues to grow. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own original poetry and prose or simply share a reading from one of their favorite poets in a laid back and relaxed setting.
