This venue is the warmest most peaceful LOVING place to be. Where people of all age's, race, gender etc come together for the love of art and expression. Where you feel welcome at ease to pour out your heart and soul and not be judged. Everyone is treated with kindness and respect. Josh the owner is most hospitable and very much a great poet himself. Luke! The host of the 719 events is so full of passion for people. His heart is bigger than his body. Creating a feeling of family and community support. You can not leave there without your spirit being fed. Thank all of you!
This place is GREAT! Perfect ambience, talented poets, award-winning features from across the United States and Denver, friendly and loving people who are there to listen and some of the best food/ drinks around. Poetry 719 does it again!!!
by far the best poetry spot in the springs...family, friends, poets pouring out there hearts on and open mic...take the time to join Poetry 719 on facebook...come watch, listen, get fed, and see our community grow!!!
A great event for all ages. No handcuffs for artists, just a place where people can be heard, share and listen. They (Poetry 719 on facebook) do a food/clothing drive to help support those in need.
A great place to grab a meal or snack, to nurture your soul or nurse your hangover. Josh (owner) is friendly and very hospitable.
BEST open mic in the 719!!!
The best place to be on a Saturday night!
Looks like I need to make my way to this one. For poets looking for an online venue, year round, head to www.slampoems.com to submit performances and compete.

A great place, fantastic view, great entertainment, and fantastic people doing wonderful performance poetry.
Hear Here is by far the most diverse, loving, tight knit community event I have ever experienced. Everyone is welcomed with open ears and encouragement. The featured poets are world renowned career poets who actively integrate themselves into this easy going atmosphere. There has not been a single time I've walked away without wishing it had gone on longer. If you are thinking of trying a poetry reading out, make this one your first priority. You won't be disappointed.

Poetry 719 and their event "Hear Here" is a brilliant sythesis of diversity and endless amounts of talent. The event welcomes anyone from any different background and allows them to express themselves in whichever way they choose into an audience of understanding eyes and open ears. The family-like atmosphere which holds no discrimination and welcomes all is complemented beautifully by the environment. The Movement Arts Community Studio is a spacious venue fully equipped with large west-facing windows so that the nostalgia of Colorado sunsets over the Rocky Mountains floods in and lights up the whole room. Hear Here and the diversity of the members brings about a copius influx of talent to the Colorado Springs community. Artists, Poets, Singers, Musicians, and the like attend Hear Here and unleash their talent in the finest and purest forms that is never in ill-taste. This is an event for any and all people, and it should be known that, whether one wants to speak or be spoken to, the community and Hear Here will welcome you with open hearts.
Pleasant atmosphere...Such a joy to have this in OUR community...Feeds all you SENSES :)
Hear Here has been a new experience for me and one that has me coming back for more. It's warm, friendly, loving and diverse. Everyone has a smile on their face by the time they leave. I know personally it brightens my week to come and have my soul filled.
Life would be far duller without this event and it's community, my community.
Plus don't be afraid to hit the mic. I read my second poem ever written and they welcomed me to their home and made me feel like their family. I never thought I could read something so personal, thinking it was too depressing or of poor quality or that no one would understand. But they do and they will for you too.
