Chances are you've walked by a local coffee shop or neighborhood bar and seen a crowd of people listening to a poet reading his or her work.

Our open mic readings are for anyone who wants to read their poetry in a public venue. Participating in an open mic reading can be a lot of fun. Some people attend just to listen, others to try out a new poem for an audience, and still others stop by to see if any crazy hijinks will ensue during the reading. It's a great way to meet other writers in your area and find out about your local writing community.

Even if you drop in just to listen, open mic nights are a great way to celebrate poetry all year long.

Here are some tips to help you out if you are just getting started:

-DO keep it short.
-DO try to eliminate filler from your speech, such as "um, uh, well" and do speak clearly into the microphone.
-DO look at the audience when you can. Eye contact will always energize a performance.
-DO relax and have a good time!

SUGGESTED DONATION $5

Mobilize the Earth: Open Call for "Green" Artwork Postcards

It's easy: Create a postcard-size artwork, either made with recycled materials, or that it represents the theme in the quote above. Mail it to us, and we will display them on April 22 during our Earth Day event, together with information about why it is important for everyone to do something. The more we collect, the more impact the display will have, and the more attention we will garner for this fantastic cause.
