We host readings in the Charlotte area with our friends at Main Street Rag Publishing. Iodine Editor/Publisher, Jonathan K. Rice partners with M. Scott Douglass, founding editor and publisher of The Main Street Rag to bring the literary community together at our events. We have sponsored readings for a number of years, bringing in some of the best poets and writers from our region and outside the state as featured readers. We also include an Open Mic at our readings, giving emerging and established writers the opportunity to share their work as well.

- Second Thursdays at Vin Master, starting at 7:00PM. Vin Master is located in Atherton Mill at 2000 South Blvd, Suite 610 here in Charlotte, NC. Readings begin at 7:00 PM.
