Live Open Mic and Slam

$10 suggested donation the night of the event.


Doors open at 7, event begins at 7:30 pm

Open mic performers will have up to five minutes to perform their work or the work of others, with credit. After the open mic, we’ll take a brief break and then launch into the slam! Slam performers will have up to three minutes in each round to perform, and will be judged by five audience members on a scale from 1-10. Top performing poets will move onto the second and third rounds, and the top scorer will walk away with $40! All poems must be performed without props, costumes, musical accompaniment, and must consist entirely of the poet’s original words and work. In the interest of creating a safe environment for our a broad and all-ages audience, we have a zero tolerance policy for racism, sexism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, religious discrimination, or otherwise harmful writing and performance. Your time on the mic is not guaranteed.
