The Open Mic of the Air is a new project from Poetry Spoken Here. Since in-person events are temporarily suspended due to coronavirus, this is a way for poets from around the world to connect and have a creative outlet while staying safe at home.
This first Open Mic of the Air features poets from Brazil, Mexico, India, both coasts of the United States, and the heartland. Give a listen and submit your work for the next episode!
Send a recording - 5 mins or shorter - of yourself reading one of your poems, including your name and location, to email@example.com.
For full submission guidelines, check out: www.poetryspokenhere.com/open-mic-of-the-air
