SHOUT! - Poetry Open Mic

 

Come share your poetic voice and talents in a great locale in Uptown Whittier every 2nd Wednesday night of the month.

The location is Half Off Books (formerly the Little Old Bookstore), and SHOUT! is hosted by Eric Morago.

Eric is a 2010 Pushcart Prize nominee and holds an MFA from California State University, Long Beach. He believes performance carries as much importance on the page as it does off. He has performed all over California and in New York, has been a member of and has coached poetry slam teams galore, and hosts SHOUT! the open mic in Uptown Whittier at Half Off Books.

SHOUT! is a recurring poetry open mic that takes place the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm. A free event, and has developed quite a following, so get there early to ensure you read before 9:30pm, unless you want to be one of those moonlight poets that helps shut the spot down around 12pm. Also, due to the occurrence of the Uptown Street Fair from April-Oct, parking will be difficult, but not impossible.

Hope to see you there!

    Is the Uptown Street Fair still happening on Wednesdays?
    The calendar for Whittier Uptown did not list it, and at yelp.com it was ambiguous. Whittier Uptown lists a farmers' market on Tuesdays and Fridays; but nothing on Wednesdays.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
