Poetry and Open Mic Night

April 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Join Indiana poet Skye Nicholson for an evening of poetry! Skye will lead off the night by performing pieces from her newly released second book, The Other Side of the Stars. Following a brief Q&A, audience members can share their poetry (or read a favorite poem) in an “Open Mic” style setting. Skye will have copies of her three books available for purchase.

This is a NO cost program and open to the community. NO REGISTRATION. At Batesville Memorial Public Library.

Open Mic Guidelines:
Stick around after Skye’s reading to enjoy original poetry and readings from local artists, or present your own writing in a relaxed and nonjudgmental space. Signups for the Open Mic portion will begin at 5:30PM. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come first serve basis.

FOR THOSE READING:
Please limit your reading to approximately 3 minutes. Feel free to read an original poem or one from your favorite poet. This event is held in a public setting, so please keep language to a PG-13 level. Discriminatory language (based on race, religion, sexual identity, origin, age, disability, or genetic information) will not be tolerated.

FOR THOSE LISTENING:
Due to the open format, this event may involve topics or language that may upset some listeners. Recommended age 14+
