Guest Poets

Brick Street Poetry includes poets in our Reading Series Poetry On Brick Street who have been published in our Tipton Poetry Journal, and/or anthologies or have been engaged in our poetry activities.  We invite poets who meet those qualifications when they have a new book released. We want our audiences to benefit from poets who we know present readings and interact with our audience in ways that are beneficial for those in attendance, as well as provide an opportunity for our guest poets to share their poetry and sell their books.

Visit our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.


We’ve had guests from our home state of Indiana, and visiting poets from as close as Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky to as far away as Germany and Mexico. Below are some photos of previous Poetry On Brick Street Guest Readers.
