“The Word Around Town (WAT) tour is an annual week-long poetry marathon held in Houston at different venues each night of the week. The marathon goes from Sunday, August 4th until Saturday, August 10th. That is seven days, seven shows, and seven different venues!
The mission of the WAT tour is to introduce poets to different venues and to new audiences in the Houston area. Now in its 8th year, the tour features poets who range in styles from academic to slam and spoken word to experimental. The venues showcased on the tour are just as diverse from the local coffee shop to community centers, bars, and non-profit institutions.”
For the complete list of poets and venues, please visit the WAT website. WITS writers such as Outspoken Bean are among the veteran poets who will perform. See you out on the town!
