US and Canadian Poetry Open Mikes

New Deal Café

Poetry Open Mic
Third Saturday of the month at 1pm

Hosted by Rocky Jones

113 Centerway
Greenbelt, MD

Phase 1:
Time permitting, and it usually does, your LIMIT
is 3 poems or 5 minutes, whichever takes LESS time.

Phase 2:
Freshen your drink; order more food; mingle; have a bathroom break…

Phase 3:
What is Texas Round Robin? After we have cycled through our entire list of open mic poets, and after a brief intermission, the host will announce the TRR, during which you may randomly approach the empty stage and read ONE poem, then yield the mic to the next brave soul. Ending at or before 3pm.
