World Above: Open Mic Poetry Nights at Dante Hall Theater
September 17 ~ 7pm

These open mics are open to the public for free.  Everyone is encouraged to attend to read their poetry.  We want to hear your voice.  Poems will not be screened.  We ask that if you are reading that you be respectful of those around you while remaining honest to yourself.  (No threatening, racist, homophobic or hateful messages of any sort will be tolerated)

Please be advised that this series is recommended for adults due to the potentially mature nature of the poems read.
Each poet reading in the Open Mic will receive 3 minutes or 2 poems of time on the mic. The Featured Poet will follow the Open Mic & time will be allowed after for discussion of the poems.

Using The Dutchman his Obe award winning play, as the central work, we will honor Baraka in his terms: criticism, music, poetry, through laughter, tears and questions.
