What is WAT?!

The mission of the WAT tour is to introduce poets to different venues and to new audiences in the Houston area. Now in it's 8th year poets featured on the tour continue to range in styles from academic to slam and spoken word to experimental. The venues showcased on the tour are just as diverse from the local coffee shop to community centers, bars and non profit institutions. The WAT tour exists to entertain while creating a forum for poets to find new audiences.

WAT gives thanks to all the participating venues, poets and volunteers who make this happen every year. If you're interested in hosting an evening of the tour as a participating venue, or becoming a sponsor or volunteer or if you just want to say hi, please go to our contact page and drop us a line.
