Have you ever wanted to read your poetry to a live audience? Would you like to practice in front of a group of mature, empathetic people? Does encouragement & support sound nice to you?
This group serves to develop confidence in your unique artistic voice and to help you discover the joys in performing when connected with yourself emotionally. Whether you are a seasoned performer or have only read your poems in the confines of your own mind, you are welcome to join us!
Events will consist of practice sessions with only our members as well as public open mic nights where we go and support one another. Depending on the event, you can share however many poems as time allows.
We can also host our own open mic events & experiment with our work incorporating elements such as film, photography, and music. We want to showcase your talent as an artist!
While we want you to "come as you are," the poems should be: + original (that means by you :)!) + tasteful & non-political + coming from positive intention
Your poetry can have its own form. Feel free to write about the topics that interest you whether that's spiritual, philosophical, or simply related to your own experience.
In case you're not sure your work is "good enough" to share to the world, what really matters is that you're expressing yourself in a true and spontaneous way. So don't let that scare you- we are in this together!
Please honor your RSVPs as we want active participation in the group!
