Community Building Through Local Open Mic Showcases with Fable The Poet
Registration is now open for this workshop (below). There are 15 seats available (limit 30 seats).
Many people know of local Open Mic opportunities in their area, but how do you turn an Open Mic
into a community safe haven and a networking platform for poets of different skill sets? We’ll explore
how artists can transcend to the next skill level and the importance of listening to every voice
regardless of orientation and beliefs and the true beauty of an open mic community.
Appropriate for: Adults and young adults of all skill levels.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
