Opolis will hold its first poetry night on Thursday, Jan. 24. The event is free and open to anyone interested in sharing or listening to poetry.

The event is open to all ages to come and read their original work or share their favorite pieces, according to a poster for the reading.

“I love poetry and I want there to be more opportunities to read and hear poetry aloud in Norman,” said Bailey Hoffner, event planner for the poetry night. “It's such a special place, I think a lot of people feel safe there in a way that might make reading and sharing their work a little less terrifying.”

Opolis hopes to hold a poetry reading monthly, Hoffner said.

Those interested can sign up for five minute reading slots beginning at 6 p.m. Readings will begin at 7 p.m. at the Opolis, located at 113 N Crawford Ave, Norman, OK. A full bar and vegan/vegetarian kitchen will open at 6 p.m.
