SCRIBES ON SOUTH is a poetry reading and open mic. The reading begins with a 20-minute featured reader and then moves through the open mic list for the rest of the night. Open mic readers have 5 minutes. There will be a space for poets to sell books.

SCRIBES ON SOUTH seeks to create community through poetry. Show out, share, and meet some new friends by sharing your work!

This reading’s featured readers are Mac Chandler and Kate Carey.

Read poems. Kick ass.




Mac Chandler is a graduate of The University of the Arts and is a happy West Philly resident. She has been published in some places and not in others. This August she will begin curating and hosting a new series for Moonstone Arts, titled Premonitions. She writes mainly about mental health and enjoying a good shower beer.
Kate Carey (she/her) is a fat queer polyamorous slut who sometimes spends whole days in bed crying because feelings are hard. Through deeply personal poetry and creative nonfiction, she touches on issues relating to trauma, fat liberation, mental illness and sexuality. December 2022’s Hot Poet in the Bullshit Lit x Olney magazine Hot Poets calendar and producer of Philadelphia’s Slutty Poems Night, you can find more about her & her work at https://www.katemcarey.com/ and on instagram @oldbaefries
