The Write on the DOT Reading Series is hoping to help local residents fall in love with area authors with a Valentine's-themed open microphone night.
Sunday’s event will feature a number of authors, poets, and artists from Dorchester and the University of Massachusetts Boston, who will share their stories and other creative works.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Savin Bar + Kitchen and will feature appearances by Sam Cha, Willie Pleasants, Betsy Gomez, Teresa McMahon, Nathaniel Hunt, and many more.
The event is free and participants are encouraged to bring their, “best/worst eros-inspired odes, erotica, limericks, diary entries, love sonnets,” to share during open microphone time.
The Write on the DOT Reading Series, a collaboration between UMass Boston students and Dorchester-based authors, is working to bridge the gap between the school and the community.
