Following Nic's reading we will open the floor to you for poetry and spoken word, which may or may not be prompted by the above "Dear....," statements.

There is a suggested donation of $5 at the door to help us promote Nic's Pacific Northwest Tour and allow for more events of this kind in the future, however no one will be turned away for inability to pay.
