Open Mic Poetry

Art in the Afternoon


In honor of  National Poetry Month

Attention, local poets!  If you would like a chance to read your poetry to an audience of appreciative listeners, come to the ArtiFactory Open Mic Poetry Afternoon on Sunday April 23.

Poetry in any style is accepted.  Length can vary but please limit each poem to three minutes.  Depending on how many people attend, you might have a chance to read more than one. 

The ArtiFactory is a family friendly venue, so children poets are welcome!  Adult subject matter is allowed but no obscenity.  

Doors open at 1:30 and the reading will begin at 2:00.  There will be refreshments available, but you can bring your own!

And Here’s a Bonus: Opening weekend for a new exhibit of artworks using the unique process of hot stamped foiling, featuring amazing creations by several local artists.  You don’t want to miss this one!

If you’re interested in reading a poem or two, please register by emailing: (subject line: Poetry Open Mic)
