About Us

Several years ago, I was exposed to an extremely talented group of writers.   Unbeknownst to me, these people formed a group that had been in existence for over 40 years.  With notable members such as Nikki Giovanni and Sam Greenlee, I was intrigued as to how I had lived in the same neighborhood as most of the members of this group and never heard of them.  It became immediately clear to me that the world needed more access to these talented artists.

Open Veins was created to fill this need.  We will strive to find and present the best talent that has here to fore only been known through live performances or local readings.

If you are an artist, please consider joining Open Veins.  If you know of someone you would like to suggest, please use our contact form.
