Mayapple Press is a small literary press founded in 1978 by poet and editor Judith Kerman. We celebrate literature that is both challenging and accessible: poetry that transcends the categories of "mainstream" and "avant-garde"; women's writing; the Great Lakes/Northeastern culture; the recent immigrant experience; poetry in translation; science fiction poetry.

Launch Pad Cooperative is pleased to present the Featured Lines reading series. Each month a different writer or poet will have the opportunity to present an extended reading at the gallery followed by a question and answer session. The aim of this reading series is to shine the spotlight on a single writer; providing them with the platform to present a body of work and the necessary time to engage and connect with the audience.

Featured Lines is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7:30pm. Readings begin at 8:00pm.

Launch Pad Cooperative is an artist-run gallery that was established in 2012, by Timothy Gaewsky, with the intent to facilitate a network for emerging visual artists who wish to enrich the community of Toledo and beyond.

Launch Pad’s mission is to provide support and encouragement for artists and writers, cultivate ideas and creativity, foster cross-discipline collaborations, and actively pursue broader exposure of member’s work. Launch Pad also seeks to encourage experimentation and innovation through the presentation of fresh, provocative new works by cooperative members. Through exhibitions, lectures and artist talks, poetry readings, performances, film and video series, and community outreach, the gallery is dedicated to the cultural enrichment of Greater Toledo.
