Come join us this coming Monday at the MAH to read, write, and scream poetry. We'll be gathering in the Garden Room, like we usually do, for a writing workshop followed by an open mic followed by a featured poet. Come through!

$2–7 cover fee at the door.


The night breaks down like this:

4:00 — FREE Writing Workshop (Sharing is Optional)
5:30 — Open Mic List Goes Out
6:00 — Poetry Begins!
7:00 — This Week's Featured Poet: Chris Harbster


More on this week's feature:

Chris Harbster is several parts attached to different means of communication. Almost grown-up in Phoenix and spread around the rest of the state of Arizona for a summed total of about 24 years, Chris has no appreciation for the politics there. The time spent elsewhere in America has helped put this into perspective. He has a strong faith in the medium of spoken word and from 2010 to 2011 he was a member of the Flagstaff Poetry Slam Team. His computer has had poems published in the compilation Abstract|Ext in Spain and the visual poetry journal Utsanga in Italy. Upon arrival in Santa Cruz 6 years ago, it was his goal to achieve the sensation of feeling 'normal'. He has never expressed or written anything remotely sarcastic. His new book might be inside-out enough. It's called 'subrealism'.

 


All ages, styles, backgrounds, beliefs, and needs are welcomed.

Respect is expected.

See you there,
The Legendary Collective
