Next Meetup

Oakville Poetry&Prose - next open mic is November 19th starting 5:30pm
Greetings. November's Poetry&Prose event is Monday 19th, from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm in the Taste of Colombia cafe's studio in Bronte, Oakville. Some of you have been there before (directions below). You can get a bite to eat - I personally vouch for the delicious soups. Entry to the event is free. Join us for 2 hours of stories and poetry. There is a 3-minute open mic for those of you who'd like to read or sing. As well, there is a guest speaker on for 20 minutes: Mohamed Fetaih, who has an interesting story to tell us, about his activism for human rights before he left Egypt. He is now on the board of Amnesty. The food and beverages are wonderful in this cafe - the cappucinos are the best for miles around. Please buy a drink and/or snack - this cafe is supporting the arts by letting us have this space for free. A Note About Parking: Do NOT park in the large (Denninger's) parking lot behind the cafe (there's a risk of being towed). Instead, there is plenty of parking on the nearby streets or else the small parking lot directly behind the cafe. Location: Taste of Colombia Cafe, 67 Bronte Rd., Bronte, Oakville See map: Time: 5:30 - 7:30pm Date: November 19th. Come and meet us, we're a friendly crowd : - ) Sheila Tucker Host of Poetry&Prose

    What we're about

    Poetry&Prose: for writers - poets - singers

    Poetry&Prose is a free monthly open mic event held in downtown Oakville. The atmosphere is supportive and friendly, for folks to read their work or else just be part of the audience. No pressure, just relaxation and a nice time. The day, time and location changes each month, to be accessible to those who work shifts or have evening classes. (Check the calendar.) But it will always be in Oakville.

    As well as a 3-to-4 minute time allotted for each reader, Poetry&Prose usually has a guest speaker given 20 minutes to read or sing their work followed by Q&A. We also dedicate occasional monthly meetings to discussion time around the processes and practices of writing and the spoken word.
