***in person readings on hold *** * *** join us weekly on zoom***
From July 2011 to February 2020, PitB met monthly in the loft of Portland Brew East. We miss our friends at the Brew and hope to gather there again. Our thanks to Patrick and all the crew who have helped us there through the years.
Portland Brew East
1921 Eastland Ave.
Nashville, TN 37206
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 reader on the open mic gets a turn to share one poem in the 1st round, and anyone who places a star(*) next to their name on the sign-up list may have another turn in the 2nd round.
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, and the feature poet has a 15 minute set.
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.
