A simple belief...


That listening to great writing while sipping great beer could make both experiences better. Brews + Prose was founded in the summer of 2012 with this idea in mind and six years later our mission has grown to showcase America's great authors to Cleveland and to showcase Cleveland to America's great authors. We want you to join us. Readings are held the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the beautiful Ohio City Room at Market Garden Brewery located at 1947 W 25th St, Cleveland, OH 44113. And when you buy a book, you'll receive a free beer.

Cleveland Drafts Literary Festival


The annual Cleveland Drafts Literary Festival is a showcase of the writers, publishers, performers, organizations, and institutions that are shaping Cleveland's unique and vibrant literary community. 

We feature drafts, or current works-in-progress, by writers hailing from northeast Ohio to engage in "creative place-making" and to offer audience members a glimpse into the creative literary processes happening across our region.

This year’s festival is held in the Larchmere neighborhood, and you can find schedule, ticket link, and information at clevelanddrafts.com.
