What we're about

Are you a poet? Or even just someone who loves hearing it read aloud? Come meet others who share your interests and enjoy great food/drink from Kawika's Ocean Beach Deli!

Every first Sunday of each month, for an open mic for anyone who wants to read works of their own (3 min each), or simply any poetry that moves them. From classics to modern contemporary, all poetry and all people are welcome.

Join us for a muse-filled Sunday each month in a supportive, fun environment, with lots of yummy food, as well as coffee, affordable quality beer and wine. Plenty of free parking a block away at Ocean Beach.
