Themed Poetry Open Mic

About this Event

Poets and Muses and District 4 Poetry bring you the Pan Poetry Project series of themed open mics.

Join us every other Saturday from 2-3pm EST on Poets and Muses's Instagram to share your poems (the first must be on the theme). Every participant will have 5 minutes (up to two poems) to perform.

To Partipate:

  1. Subscribe to the Poets and Muses weekly newsletter (sent out on Sundays) to receive the theme, which will be explored during the following Saturday's poetry writing workshop (optional though soothing for your FOMO).
  2. Those who already have poems on the theme or write them during Saturdays' writing workshop can send a portion (demonstrating the theme) to Poets and Muses's Instagram (by the Friday before the open mic) in order to participate.
  3. Those who sign up to participate but do not show up during the open mic (more than twice) will not be allowed to participate in future open mics.

For Example:

The open mics will be facilitated alternately by Imogen Arate (Poets and Muses) and D. Jose Ayala (District 4 Poetry).

Imogen Arate is an award-winning Asian-American poet and writer and the Executive Producer and Host of Poets and Muses, an award-winning weekly poetry podcast. She has written in four languages and published in two. Her works have been featured in journals on three continents.

D. Jose Ayala is a chicano writer who strives to support community building through literature. He can be found hosting District 4 Poetry open mic every third Thursday. He initiated a creative writing club at Gateway Community College and volunteered with Bonny Books, a family-run bookstore that operated out of Arizona’s East Valley region. His prose poem was included in Anna Vera’s A Short Story Collection and he was featured in the award-winning podcast, Poets and Muses. He’s currently revising his first completed fantasy novel. He likes cats, punk and metal music, poetry, and speculative fiction.
