Announcing a New Poetry Open Mic: The Adobe Walls Open Mic!
This word comes fresh to us from Adobe Walls Editor and Founder Kenneth Gurney: beginning on Tuesday, August 9, 2011, the Adobe Walls Open Mic will take place at 7 pm on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at Page One Books (11018 Montgomery NE, ABQ – SW corner of Juan Tabo and Montgomery)! The sign-up list will be posted at 6:45, and the event will begin at 7 pm sharp (going until 9 pm), with each open mic participant getting 5 minutes at the mic. *Note: publication in Adobe Walls is NOT a requirement to participate.
Here’s the format, directly from Kenneth:
“…The Format will be: 30 minutes of open mic, 20 minute feature, a break, and open mic with as many readers as will fit in the remaining time. If you sign up for open mic, figure you have 5 minutes and keep in mind I can be a time nazi….”
The inaugural night will have Merimee Moffitt as the feature!
We are so happy to hear of this news; we wish the endeavor well, and hope that you will make time out to come check out this night and participate!
