October Open Mic Report-out

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

We had a great time in October at Bossa. With some new voices and veteran GPIents on the mic, we rocked it for audience members from the GPI good ole days and the DC Poetry Project meetup group. Here are some highlights:

Zane became Walter White from Breaking Bad…no, clearly you don’t know who you’re dealing with!

Jess tapped into her dreams and explained how we’re going to get it.

Luis OPP’d The Peace Warrior: while the outside spins and weakens, the peace warrior grows…inside, patiently waiting.

Jen for just once: would like to hear the breath of emotion without being called a bitch, would like to be successful without being viewed as a threat, would like everyone to be equal.

And there was much more…calm trees, no pain, the mad hatter, odes against facebook, life abounding from the sky to the ground, a simon and garfunkel recitation, and snappy beats. Join us out at Bossa, 2463 18th St. NW DC, every second Tuesday of the month, 7-9 PM. See you there!

Howdy GPI! Our friends at the DC Poetry Project have been coming out to our DC open mics this year and spreading the poetry love. We want to help spread the word about their weekly radio open mic, during which you can call in and share your work:

The Power of Poetics: The DC Poetry Project’s Open Mic Poetry Call-In Show!

The Power of Poetics airs every Wednesday night at 8:00pm EST / 5:00pm PST! Hosted by Dr. Michael Anthony Ingram, Executive Director of the DC Poetry Project, the show offers poets, spoken word artists, as well as other writers opportunities to openly celebrate their love for words in all its forms. So join us to share or listen to poems, prose, or other styles of expression with an audience of open minds and ears. We may be physically located in Washington DC, but our love for poetry is worldwide!  If there are questions, please call the DC Poetry Project Office at 202-540-0327, email at or tweet @dcpoetryproject.
