About Riverfront Readings

The Riverfront Readings series of poetry and fiction readings was started in Kansas City, Missouri in 1986 by Philip Miller and Donn Blevins. In those days, the location actually was in the Riverfront area, in the Kansas City Artists Coalition space. For many years we held most of our readings at “the castle building” where The Writers Place was located. Prior to the pandemic, readings had moved to The Nonprofit Village at 31 W. 31st Street, with occasional readings at other locations in the Kansas City area. Many Riverfront events are now online. We sometimes partner with the Vino & Verse readings series with live events at The Warwick.

Regularly scheduled Riverfront readings are generally on the second Friday of the month, starting at 8:00 PM.
