Second Saturday of the Month
Open mic sign up starts at 5:30pm. The reading is in the loft, and the list goes out on a table near the stage. Sign up is first come, first served, and readers get their choice of open spots.
*Each person who signs up for the open mic gets a turn to read one poem before the feature. After the feature, anyone who places a star(*) next to their name on the list may read again.*
Reading starts at 6:00pm.
Around 7:00, we pass a hat for the folks at Portland Brew East, who stay open late just for us. The feature poet has a 15 minute set after the first round of readers.
The reading ends at about 8:30pm.
Keep the sign up sheet close. After introducing each poet, adjust the mic height, making it even with the lower lip of the reader’s mouth.
