What we're about

Someone recently said, poetry is not meant to be read quietly, but to be listened to. So just like in the Dead Poets Society movie, I would like to meet with people who also love poetry, love to read it aloud, love to perform it, love to talk about it and love to write it. - Let's come together sharing poems and why they touch us the way they do.

Tongue & Groove Open Mic - IN PERSON

FIND US ONLINE AND SIGN UP FOR OUR MONTHLY EMAIL REMINDER
http://tongueandgroove-openmic.com
——————————————————————————————————————

Tongue & Groove is an open mic hosted and organized by Anna Weaver, Sarah Egan Warren, and Andrew Warren.

Every second Sunday, Raleigh’s local talent gathers to co-create a night of ephemeral art—including poetry, music, storytelling, and the occasional interpretive dance. Anything but comedy (not that you can’t be funny).

Each month, we close the show with a collective poem we call The Dovetail, written during the show by the performers and audience.

List opens at 7. Show starts at 7:30. Slots are 7 minutes.

Covers welcome. Originals encouraged!

UPDATE!!

For our December 2021 show, we return to the art gallery at VAE and all its quirky and inspiring glory. We will miss the artists who've been joining our Zoom calls from outside the Triangle. Please keep up with us via our email list…we may go back online again, as the public health situation evolves.

Meanwhile, stay healthy and keep creating.
