Poetry Night

Beatnik Cafe presents another night of hearing truth from lesser heard perspectives!

6:50-7 pm- Open Mic signup
7-7:10 pm- Intro
7:10-7:30 pm- Brendan Constantine reading
7:30-7:50 pm- Dare Williams reading
7:50-8:50 pm- Poetry Open Mic (3 minutes per poet)

Poetry Open Mic Guidelines: Please come with poems to read at the Open Mic. You could read poems by you or by other people you respect. This is not a space to promote your wine company's social media. I appreciate your other modes of self-expression, but will you at least write a poem about it?

If you don't have any poems you want to read at the Open Mic, please see the below writing prompt.

July trickled through in a scary scope of flowers, clamming up sun. Write a poem about balancing how to live outside of work as summertime slows down.
