Brand New Year / Brave New World
The Ancient City Poets will host a community open mic poetry reading on Sunday January 29th from 3:00 to 4:30 at Corazon Cinema and Cafe (36 Granada Street, Saint Augustine, Florida 32084, across from the Lightner Museum).
Saint Augustine Speaks is an open mic series that offers poets of all skill levels an opportunity to share their poems with a loving and supportive audience. The microphone will be turned on at 3:00 pm and all are encouraged to share their own poems or works from their favorite writers. There will be a "Brand New Year/Brave New World" theme to mark the first Ancient City Poets reading of 2017. Share your musings about the new year and your hopes and fears for this brave new world and brand new year. Attendees do not have to stick to this theme to share their work. The gatherings are held "renga style" with no emcee or sign-up sheet and end when everyone has had an opportunity to share.
Here is the Facebook event invite:
Our readings are free and open to everyone in the community. We do ask that you consider patronizing the Corazon and thank them for opening their doors to poetry and spoken word. Their full cafe menu will be available during the event so please come prepared to buy a sandwich, beverage, or sweet treat. Here is the menu:
