CU Open Mic in the Neighborhood

  • Please email for our location this week (map)

This week Dillon has graciously opened up his home for our meetup. 

Please email for this week's location

As always, we will spend time writing, sharing, and workshopping. 

But in addition, we will practice reading poetry in front of a group. So prepare 5-10 minutes of poetry (your own and/or from favorite author) to share. Want to try more of a slam style? Now's your chance to practice in front a small encouraging group. Don't forget to include some banter between your poems. 

And in keeping with this week's theme, we will discuss poetry readings, what we enjoy about them, what we hate, whether they should exist or if poetry is made to be read out loud. What is the "poetry reading voice" and should I try a poetry slam competition? All this and more

Remember when you bring in your own poetry to discuss - please bring in 6-8 copies to share. 

Hope to see everyone there
