Creative Colloquy: Formed as a way for writers to connect with each other and read their stories for an audience, Creative Colloquy is open to writers 21+. They meet at Black Kettle Bites and Brews in Downtown Tacoma on the third Monday of each month. There are usually 5 featured readers who read for 15 minutes or so and then there is an open mic where anyone from the audience can read for 5 minutes.
