FIRST OPEN MIC WON’T BE THE LAST

Go big or go home, right? When I decided an open mic would be fun, I jumped into it without considering I’ve never used StreamYard before, or even streamed. Despite this, I had a blast. We had plenty of really good poetry with a nice mix of styles and levels of experience. StreamYard was pretty easy to use and it gave us a nice, professional product despite my inexperience. Everyone on in the open mic agreed to come back again and the suggested prompt was “poop.”

So, while poems not about “poop” are welcome, they won’ be mandatory. The next open mice has already been scheduled for Friday, May 21 at 6 pm CST. Spots are limited to 8 at the moment. Now that we are doing this, I’ll build a guest list and we will make it happen. For now, you can watch the first imperfect but fabulously fun POWetry event here.

    Sounds like a TOPIC idea! I hope to join you in the future, thank you for all the work you are doing to put poetry (and it’s versatility) in the fore, for more folks to appreciate what it’s all about — or can be, or strives to be!
