Oct 12 – Open Mic Mashup
Tonight we offer an open mic with a twist. Tonight’s Open Mic “MASHUP” involves this senario: Read two of your own poems and one poem by the person next to you – or one from a chapbook or collection. Some will be on hand to choose from.
The panel talk tonight will be rescheduled due to cancellations by two of the panelists. Ahh well, the best made plans of poets….
