Waterline Writers is a literary reading series.


Over the years Waterline Writers has earned a reputation as the Fox Valley’s premiere reading series. Held inside the gorgeous Water Street Studios on the 3rd Sunday of every month during the academic year (September-May). The event begins at 7pm, featuring several writers selected by submission, followed by an Open Mic at 9pm. Readings are traditionally held in the main art gallery. This series is currently hosted by Cathy Borders and Michelle Donfrio.
