Welcome! Poets in Pajamas works to bring readings to people all over the world. Though called “Poets in Pajamas,” we do intersperse prose in both fiction and nonfiction through our selected readers. All readings begin at 7pm Eastern, 4pm Pacific and are broadcast live on our Facebook page, HERE. Readings are about 15 minutes, and we do offer a chance for Q&A after the reading.

On behalf of the readers and staff at PiP, we hope you’ll join us.
