The Common Language Project: Ascent – Reading

May 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

Sunday, May 19th | 7pm
Free | RSVP Required

Born of a desire to bring the many members of the North Texas poetry community into conversation with each other, The Common Language Project places participants in the same room and turns them loose to dream. We hope you’ll join us for a reading of some of the poems from the anthology at the beautiful Turner House in Oak Cliff to officially close out this year’s Dallas Is Lit!

This year, we invite you to the ascent. Harrowing or halcyon, up the stairs or to the stars, scaling a mountain or soaring in your soul, humans have sought to rise, physically and metaphorically, since we first drew breath. Float into new levels of consciousness, climb a pyramid, or rocket beyond the safety of the atmosphere, then share your journey with us–the risks you brave, the horizons you’ve crossed, the view as it’s unfolding before you.

RSVP (Required)

Please enter a number from 00000 to 99999.
