HAZEL is a San Francisco-based monthly reading series and an ever-evolving community. Each month, we invite a surprising mix of emerging and established women writers–poets, graphic novelists, short story writers, memoirists, and more–to share new work. The result: a truly unforgettable evening.


 [br] the roots of the hazel, the hazel that stands
on the hillslope of the heart, tough and hardy,
an accumulated weekday of Angelic orders;
high-speed, hyacinthic in its decay, life,
on earth as it is in heaven
