Open Mic & Poetry Slam
Are you a poet? Do you like to watch poets? Do you have a non-poetry talent that you want to share with the world? Well then, this is the event for you! The Rockford Certified Open Mic and Poetry Slam is coming up on January 16th at 6PM.
This event is FREE and participants may sign up in advance or at the door. All acts are welcome during the open mic in the first half of the show, including music, comedy, dance, and magic. The slam competition in the second half of the show is for poets reading their original works only. Slam participants, please have two poems ready in case you make it to the second round. This is a fairly informal event, so don't be shy about participating! The top three poets will receive a festive prize.
