US and Canadian Poetry Open Mikes

Open Mics in Orange, CA

The Ugly Mug


Two Idiots Peddling Poetry is a weekly poetry reading held at the Ugly Mug Cafe in Orange, California on Wednesdays at 8 pm. The reading generally has one or two featured poets reading for 20-30 minutes each, plus an open mic.

The Rules:

1. Open readers get to read 3 poems or 5 minutes (whichever comes first).

2. Explore your Idiocy: Have fun! Take risks! Don't worry about what other people will think! Be respectful (but preferably irreverent)!

3. Don't blame the Ugly Mug, we're the Idiots running the reading: respect the venue, spend money, show your gratitude for the space being made available.
