The Platform


NOTE: The Platform for Wednesday, March 7th has been cancelled because of the weather. Hope to see you all in April!


The Platform is a literary open mic, open to the public. We feature first time readers, early career writers and seasoned, published authors. We encourage using your original poetry and prose, and you’ll always find a supportive literary community ready to listen. Sign up starts at 7:30pm, readings are from 8 to 9:30pm. Each reader gets a 5 minute maximum reading time. If the sign up fills before you put your name down, we’ll put you on the waitlist for that night.

When: first Wednesday of every month from 8 to 9:30 (sign up starts at 7:30)

Where: Short Stories Community Book Hub (23 Main St, Madison, NJ 07940)
