Join us for another amazing poetry slam and open mic!!!

There is a 5 dollar suggested donation for this event but no one is turned away.

We will have a feature from Dylan Collins!

More about Dylan:
Dylan Collins is a spoken word artist, writer, poet, activist and educator. He is the host and creator of Word Humboldt, a weekly community based spoken word open mic in Arcata, CA and was part of the City Soul Café Poetry team in Raleigh, NC. Dylan recently published his first full length book Love Poems We Write Ourselves through Writers Block Publishing. He created a poetry slam club and coached incredible youth poets from Garner Magnet High School in North Carolina and ran a creative writing program at Pathways for People in Cary, NC working with teens and adults with disabilities and was the Humboldt County Poetry Out Loud coach in 2019. He facilitated writing workshops and performed his words out loud all across the country. He is in awe of the number of doors spoken word has opened for him in his life and can only hope to give back in return to everyone what it has given him.

We will be at our venue, Tiny’s Coffee Northeast! This means our show is all-ages! Everyone is welcome. We do not censor our mic except for instances of hate-speech. Please also note that we start a little earlier then at previous venues.

Accessibility info: Tiny’s is on the 6 bus line, which is a frequent service line. It is a quarter mile from the the streetcar line and about a half mile away from the max. The building and stage is wheelchair accessible and most of the seating can be moved to create space for accessibility equipment. The venue serves food and coffee, so it is not scent-free.
