A sign-up for short 5-7 minute slots will be available prior to the beginning of the open mic and will receive preference. When the list is concluded, any time left over will be open time on the mic. Read your work, practice, experiment with a new style. Or even read someone else’s work, a poem that you love. Subject matter may include swearing or triggering content and are not necessarily the opinions of the Gallery. Suggested age 12+.
Are you looking to work on your pieces of poetry that are in-progress before performing during the Open Mic? Join us for a Poetry Workshop/Round-Table on Saturday, February 4th at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM.
MEET YOUR HOST: Alaina Foster is a queer non-binary poet from the Midwest residing in Ypsilanti. Their work spans decades and subject matter from social justice to mental health to humor and relationships. They have performed their work in poetry slams across the country as well as internationally and encourage everyone to experience and engage with poetry. They have terrible stagefright and perform anyway.
Mobility note: Our beautiful 19th century building does not have an elevator, so all attendees will need to take a flight of stairs to our second floor Gallery space.
