#ArtLitPhx: Poetry Open Mic – Holiday Humbug


Date: December 20, 2018

Time: 7:30pm

Location: Jarrod’s Coffee, Tea & Gallery, 154 W Main St, Mesa, Arizona, 85201

Event Description:

Bring your holiday haikus, Krampus contos, dark carols, solstice sonnets, Chanukah stanzas, Christmas canzones, spoken word sestinas, Kwanzaa tankas, Diwali rondeaus, New Year senryus, Epiphany epigrams, Three Kings quatrains, Festivus terza rimas, or you know, some free verse shenanigans.

New Poem Challenge! Prepare a “cracked Carol” to read! Take your favorite (or not so favorite) holiday song/Carol and fracture and reimagine it as only you can!

White Elephant Exchange: Bring an item that cost you NO money (and you didn’t make) – something you found, something you were given – we’ll do some kind of ridiculous exchange and be sure to send you home with something even less valuable than when you showed up (I’m looking at you, Snooki Ornament).
