MONSTER HOUSE PRESENTS is a monthly reading series in Bloomington, Indiana, curated by Monster House Press, showcasing emerging and established poets, writers, & artists from across the US. Each event will feature writers, musicians, and visual artists, reimagine the format of traditional poetry readings, & strive to engage diverse audiences, all in a committed effort to improve public access to literature, strengthen collaboration between literature and other expressions of art, and foster the reputation of Bloomington as an exciting hub for the literature + arts in the Midwest and beyond.
