The Open Mouth Reading Series is in its third year of bringing community-based poetry to Northwest Arkansas. This month's poetry festival runs from Oct.29 - Nov. 2 and will feature a special Halloween showcase on the spookiest night of the year. The event, at Stage Eighteen in Fayetteville, will include a poetry slam, costume contest--with categories ranging from best zombie poet to emo monster--and lots of candy.
Listen to Molly Rector, president and co-curator for Open Mouth, talk poetry and Halloween costume ideas with Katy Henriksen ahead of the festival.
