Austin Writers Roulette

Austin Writers Roulette is a monthly, culturally diverse evening filled with the uncensored voices of different writers 18 years and older, reading/performing/promoting their original written works of book/play excerpts, poetry, essays, short stories, performance art and skits. The emphasis is on the different expressions of the written word coming to life based on a monthly theme.

In addition, Austin Writers Roulette will provide an inexpensive ($15) space for artists to set up vendor tables for back-of-the-room promotional items such as books, t-shirts and flyers for their upcoming performances. Plus, the audience gets great entertainment for free…of course, we’ll happily accept a donation of $5!

Austin Writers Roulette occurs every second Sunday of the month from 4 to 6 pm  at Stompin’ Grounds 3801 South Congress, Austin, TX 78704. If you’re excited about reading/performing, then email Teresa the selection(s) that you wish to read/perform along with the corresponding theme(s) at Check out the Austin Writers Roulette past shows.
