December Open Mic!

December 17, 2011

Join us this Monday, December 19th to kick off the holidays with estrogen and verse! Before you head off to your vacation (or stay-cation) come share your poetry, spokenword, rant, journal entry, or any words you can keep under 5 minutes really! We are a space for experienced poets and novices alike. We have a proud herstory of inspiring new poets from the beginning all the way to publication, slam success, or just self-actualization through the written word. So whatever your level of experience, get up on the mic! 

Where: Big Bear Cafe, 1700 1st St. NW, Washington, DC

What: Women-Only Open Mic!

Date: Monday, December 19th

Time: Doors at 7:30

And as if making your voice heard and supporting your fellow woman weren’t reason enough to show up, our featured poet for this show is the incomparable Ya-Ya! She’s one of DC’s own slam poets, having represented our city at the Women of the World Poetry Slam and on multiple teams at the National Poetry Slam. This year, Ya-Ya also helped coach the DC Youth Slam Team. Most importantly, she is a damn good poet.
