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. Now they are held at The Writers Place in midtown and in other Kansas City locations.
Regular Riverfront readings are usually on the second Friday of the month, starting at 8:00 PM. For specific information, see the Riverfront Readings Calendar.

Annette Hope Billings is an award-winning author/actress from Topeka, Kansas, whose published books include "A Net Full of Hope" (2015) and "Descants for a Daughter"(2016). Dubbed "Maya of the Midwest" by fans, she also has work included in poetry anthologies, a short story collection, and in numerous publications.
Iris Appelquist is active in the literary/spoken word scene. Her work has previously appeared in Present Magazine, Pand, Pomegranate, Kill Poet, and In Between Hangovers.
Crista Siglin, "My work is an exploration of the language of narrative. It is an attempt to compare written and sppoken language to visual language, inspect the limitations of both, and discover where the two might start to overlap. In the work, I tend to namipulate the architecture in the scene. Often they bend into unfeasible angles and sometimes tip into perspective impossibility."
