The Only Tenn-I-See Reading Series
Established in spring 2016 by poets Katie Condon and Jeremy Michael Reed, The Only Tenn-I-See Reading Series was an unaffiliated community project bringing emerging and established writers from around the country together to read their poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Based in Knoxville, Tennessee, the readings were free and open to the public. You can see the lineup for all four school years the co-founders ran the series below.
