There has not been too much poetry happening in Troy, but it all changes in a couple of weeks. On Friday, June 29 local poet (and Nitty Gritty Slam #14 winner) D. Colin is kicking off a new monthly poetry open mic series called Between The Lines in Troy. This open mic for poetry and spoken word will be taking place on the last Friday of each month as a part of Troy Night Out.
Here is more information from the host:
Between the Lines Open Mic Poetry at Francesca’s, 461 Broadway, Troy
Friday, June 29th – sign up at 6:45 – start time at 7:00
There will be $5 donation
Hosted by D. Colin
The format: poets on the list will be able to share 1-2 poems. Every poet’s name will be placed in a container. One name will be pulled out. That poet gets to talk about their poem and answer questions from the audience about the poem, the process of writing, the poet’s relationship to art, whatever question pertaining to poetry and the selected poet essentially getting “between the lines.”
