THEME: "Nine is Fine"
SUNDAY, AUG 26, 2018
Come celebrate with us we look back on nine years of hosting free poetry open mic readings in the Nation's Oldest City.
The Ancient City Poets will host a community open mic reading on Sunday August 26 from 3:00 to 4:30 at Corazon Cinema and Cafe (36 Granada Street, 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.
Readers are invited to share with us your love for the Ancient City Poets, or how your life has changed since you found us, or your love for the number 9. The theme is meant as a writing prompt and it is your choice if you want to follow the theme or not. Give us two or three of your polished poems or share fresh ink from your notebook. Invite a friend or two or three to cheer you on.
A sign-up sheet will be available at 2:30 and the open mic will start at 3:00 pm. Readers will be called to the podium in the order their names appear on the list. The mic will be turned off at 4:30 to allow the last 30 minutes for a meet and greet and networking.
If you have ever gone to one of our monthly readings over the last eight years, you should Invite your friends to come and check it out. Just go to the event link and click that you are interested or attending and also invite a few friends while you are at it.
