Calling all poets! Join us for a poetry open mic every second Sunday of the month. It's open to all poets, 18 and over. We'll follow a round-robin format, with a featured reader to begin. You may bring more than one poem to read.
Special theme for this special Valentine's Day reading: Love! You're invited to bring your "PG"-rated love poetry. You're also welcome to bring poetry on other themes, if you wish.
THIS EVENT WILL MEET ONLINE VIA ZOOM. You may join us by computer, mobile device, or telephone. You MUST register to attend. You will receive a meeting link at least one hour before the event. If you have problems logging in, call the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch at 216-382-4880 and ask for Laurie Kincer.
