An open mic is a wonderful thing, but often people take the opportunity to rant or share a journal entry in the guise of poetry. While this is an important opportunity, and we host a true open mic night at Vape City on Wednesday evenings, it creates an environment where there is no accountability for the work that is shared. While it is important to provide a venue for people to share without the nerves associated with critique; an open mic environment does little to help the performer hone his/her craft as a literary artist.
Our poetry circle is different. We create a safe and supportive environment for poets to grow and improve as artists.
The poetry circle will employ the same format as our highly successful Writer's circle.
The process is simple. You'll have the opportunity to share your work. We request that you consider the number of attendees when choosing how many pieces to share. You will then receive feedback from the group.
Reading and discussion times will vary depending on the number of participants.
The discussions will be moderated to ensure that all readers will have the opportunity to share and receive feedback.
As always, we welcome anyone who wants to come and simply enjoy the process of artists working together to become better at what they do.
We hope to see you there!
