The Resonance Reading Series is a monthly reading series dedicated to showcasing the best of poetry, prose, and other text-based work. Founded in 2013, it is hosted by the Resonance Café and curated by poet Klara du Plessis





Readings are held on the first Tuesday of every month, and start at 9:00 PM. In addition, special events are occasionally scheduled outside of the regular monthly events -- follow us on Twitter or Facebook to stay up to date.


The Resonance Reading Series has presented the work of over 150 readers, from the local Montreal community, the rest of Canada, and beyond. Consult our archive for more information on our readers and for samples of their work.
