About Spoken Word

When the school year starts back up, that’s when things really heat up at Converge Gallery! Spoken Word is a seasonal event that runs from September to May on the Second Friday of the month. Sign-ups for the event start at 6:30 pm and everything runs from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. Admission is just $3.

Spoken Word has a simple setup: we turn on the mic and ask those interested in reading poetry, prose, free style verse, dramatic readings, stand up comedy and more keep it under 5 minutes. All are welcome even if you just want to listen rather than participate.

Converge Gallery has been hosting Spoken Word for the past five years. It’s a great way for the literary talents of Williamsport and the surrounding areas to have a chance in the spotlight. Come share your talents!
