Part of the 2022 Tell It Slant Poetry Festival

Let your voice be heard at our Festival open mic night! If you have longed to share your poetry in the safe and encouraging environment of Emily Dickinson’s garden, this is your chance. If you’d like to hear a wide variety of poets bravely sharing their work we hope to see you in the audience. Following the open mic, celebrated poet Nathan McClain reads from his new book Previously Owned (Four Way Books, 2022).

Open mic spots have filled, but there’s still plenty of room to enjoy fresh poetry in the garden!
