PORTLAND BREW EAST
1921 Eastland Avenue
NASHVILLE, TN 37206
SECOND SATURDAY OF THE MONTH
Sign-up starts at 5:30.
Reading starts at 6:00.
Poetry in the Brew opens the reading, and when there’s a guest host, introduces them.
Each poet gets a couple poems or about 4 minutes on the mic.
Around 7:00, pass a hat for the folks at Portland Brew East, who stay open late just for us.
Halfway through the sign-up list, introduce the feature poet (15-minute set).
We end promptly at 8:30.
Have the sign-up sheet close by.
After introducing the next open mic poet, please adjust the mic height for the reader. Ideally, the mic should be even in height with the lower lip of the mouth.
If the guest host has any questions, he or she may ask the person working the sound system for help.
