MOTOR SIGNAL

7 PM, Signal-Return

The Motor Signal Reading Series jolts the poetry reading out of its conventional form. It is a monthly literary showcase that launched in February 2014, curated by Literary Detroit and hosted at Signal-Return. Motor Signal invites local poets to read their work, but it goes beyond a typical poetry reading by involving the audience in an activity of literary co-creation.
