  • Hey Guerrilla Poets! Our friend Rica Madrid has been part of a march from NYC to DC to demand the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment into the US Constitution with performance artist Natalie White. #MarchForERA started on July 8 and will go to July 23, walking 250 miles over 16 days through cities like New [...]

  • Old friends and new faces popped into Bossa in February to share their poetry. Every second Tuesday of the month there, we get a chance to share our hearts and minds through poetry and even experience a little creative therapy in the process. Here are some highlights from the night: John only had one thin [...]

  • Happy New Year! Luis and the gang had a great time at the open mic at Bossa in January. Around six or seven different performers got up on the mic several times in front of a half-full house. Come see us again in February on the second Tuesday… Tuesday, Feb. 9th, 7-9 PM at Bossa, [...]

  • It was an intimate and nostalgic night at Bossa in December. Friends from the Dupont Circle days swung by to share some love and OPP. The open mic vets were swapping the mic, as a catalog of hits kept rolling out. Jessica tried to make the audience into a reggae band, and many giggles were [...]

  • We had a special November at Bossa, with guest hosts Margaux Delotte-Bennett and Michael Anthony Ingram warming the mic in between poets. They had a blast hosting the GPI open mic!

  • We had a great group of newcomers and regulars at our September open mic. Even those who not sure they would read that night were inspired by the end of it to share their minds, like we’ve seen at so many of our open mics. Thanks to all who came out! Here are some highlights: [...]

  • On August 22nd, Jessica of the Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency facilitated a poetry workshop with Michael of the DC Poetry Project and their crew. The DC Poetry Project started making the GPI open mic their monthly meetup spot this year, and we are psyched to be collaborating with them. The workshop was attended by ten people [...]

  • We had another wonderful time at our open mic in August. We were so inspired by each other’s words and energy that we stuck around afterward at Bossa to listen and dance to Cheik Hamala’s band. Good times all around! Here are some highlights: Luis brought us the beginnings of his oil paintings…a melange so [...]
