Who We Are
Cracked Walnut is a traveling literary reading series based primarily in the Twin Cities. We organize readings in traditional and non traditional spaces to procure a love for live literature, community and creativity. CW readings generally involve a bit of everything, including poetry, fiction, creative non fiction and spoken word. We feature artists in the Twin Cities at all publication/career levels and are constantly striving to include more talented writers and more diversity as we push the art of live literature.
