Poetry NI presents: Purely Poetry open mic night. A monthly open mic poetry night, based in the Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast. Purely Poetry runs on the first Friday of every month.
Purely Poetry has been running since October 2011, welcoming fans of poetry of all ages, experience and background get together to share in the mutual adoration of words. The event provides a platform for all poets to share their work, fostering an open, laid back and encouraging atmosphere for people to read and listen in comfort.
Purely Poetry wants YOUR poems – the mic is on and it awaits YOU!
You’ll need a ticket in that case. Tickets are £4, with all proceeds going to the Crescent. Just buy on the night or pre-order through the Crescent box office.
Registration for readers will be open before we start. Just get your name in the hat. Names are then pulled out at random throughout the night.
Once you’re name is out of the hat, then’s your chance to take the mic! Each reader has seven mins max to read, so that everyone has equal time, and that as many readers as possible can be fitted into the night. You can read your own work, share a favourite, share just one poem or as many as you can fit into 420 seconds!
This event is B.Y.O.B
