WHO ARE WE?

The Arsyn Spit Fire Crew is a coalition of poets from this community that have come together to offer a poetry venue. Come with your hearts, ears and more importantly your WORDS!

WHO YO MAMA NEM?

We are a product of Kansas City's Finest Word Smiths and Artists.

Black Poets Collective
The Recipe
4 HISWILL
Latin Poets Collective
Poetic Underground
Mother Mary
Maurice Copeland

(Look into those names as they are a history lesson. Poetry in Kansas City has a strong past and present. Respect Your Elders and Legends as these are just SOME of the people that built platforms before us, laid the blueprint, and made ways. Many still fight for this community in many ways. They are the reason some of us know poetry today.)
.
Really, we come from you! All parts of Kansas City, West Bottoms, Downtown, Northeast, both sides of the "red line",18 and Vine all the way to the South Side.

WHAT YALL GOT PLANNED?

Each month there will be 3 Open Mics and 1 Slam (Held on the 4th Tuesday of each month). On those special months when there is a 5th Tuesday we will indulge in either a Haiku or Compliment Death Match (Yes These are VERY FUN)

We also are looking to offer regular writing workshops because it is important that poets receive feedback outside of scores and applause. Stay tuned for more information about this.

If you have any questions please feel free to message any host or message directly to the Director of Arsyn Spit Fire Sheri Hall.
