Open Mic Guidelines

Diane at open mic

All levels of experience are welcome, both experienced poets and new poets.

Your original poetry is strongly encouraged.

One poem, please.

Please keep your reading under five minutes, even if it means a partial reading of your piece.

In the interest of time, please limit your introductory remarks.

Colorful language is fine–gratuitous shock language is not.

Be considerate of others in subject matter and terminology.

Be kind and respectful toward those in the room.

Must sign in to read. Spaces are limited.
