Wordlights Saturday poetry evenings presented by Nova PDX, Rocking Frog Cafe and hosted by Igor Brezhnev.

On Saturday July 6th, we’ll have a feature from Nani Jones and a long set poetry open mic!

Sign-ups start at 5:30, show starts at 6PM. On first and third Saturdays each performer in the open mic gets 10 minutes, there are only 8 slots available and the list order is randomized.

Come share your words and join us for a night of open mic, a great feature and get nourishment & libations from Rocking Frog Cafe (home of the best donuts)! 🙂
