Last Minute reminder - Poetry Workshop & Open Mic Tonight!

Just a quick last minute reminder from Zach, 

Join us tonight as we bring 3 of the most talented writers and performers in the nation to Albuquerque for a writing workshop and performance (plus an open mic for you all to share your work and maybe win $200 worth of prizes!)

I cannot say enough about my respects for these three women and their fire tongues~ poetry dances from them like small flames in the fireplace on winter evenings- you don't want to miss it!

$5 suggested donation each for the workshop and the showcase- a great way to spend your sunday and start the week off with verse!

Hope to see you there!

Writing Workshop with Suzi Q, Isis and Bianca Mikahn

Sunday, October 2nd
5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
The Projects
3614 High Street (one block east of Edith on Candelaria)

This is your chance to spend an afternoon with 3 of the most accomplished voices in poetry today. All three ladies are national and regional champions, as well as widely published poets who have shared the stage with everyone from Amiri Baraka to Gil Scott Heron and more. The ladies will be sharing their experience, perspective and passion for this all ages workshop for a mere $5 suggested donation. This is a great chance to support touring artists and gain some new insights into modern poetics at the same time! Be sure to stick around after for the showcase and People's Choice Open Mic.

3 Lady Champions from Denver (...And Their Words Were Dancing)

Sunday, October 2nd
7 pm to 9 pm
The Projects
3614 High Street (one block east of Edith on Candelaria)

3 of the nation's hottest poetic voices arrive in Albuquerque with a blend of passionate performance and lyrical craft like nothing you've seen before! Suzi Q, Isis and Bianca Mikahn will showcase their talents and new work for you. Opening for them is our own linguistic luminary, Jessica Helen Lopez. Poets are invited to sign up for the People's Choice Open Mic also, and share their work with the audience. Just for fun we will be offering a prize pack (worth over $200) full of art, poetry, free massage and more for the audience's favorite poem to be decided by a vote.

Come out and support these traveling artists~ I have no doubt you'll be blown away by the diversity and dynamics of the fire they bring and we're looking forward to hearing from you local poets as well!
