Who We Are
Cracked Walnut is one of the Twin Cities Chapters of the League of Minnesota Poets. We organize readings in traditional and non traditional spaces to procure a love for live literature, community and creativity. Cracked Walnut 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.
Developing School Poetry Programs
Our mission is to create new bridges among writers, writing communities and audiences through diverse and inclusive literary events and services.
