Known for their unique and dynamic events, Metatron has curated an evening that will not only feature an interactive, digital, collective writing experiment, but also a marathon-style reading featuring a dozen young, local writers. Come for a bit or stay for the whole thing! We have a numinous evening in the works that will tantalize and stimulate your mind with our featured readers surreal and exquisite musings!”
