Where: GCC, Main Campus, Room MA 142
Hosted by Shawnte Orion
What: Come prepared to read some of your favorite poems. Bring a used book of poetry to exchange, or come without a book and just recite your favorite poem from memory.
Note: This event is not an open mic. The next open mic at GCC will be January 20, 2016.
While Shawnte and the others brought some great books, I was quite disappointed at the turn out. Other than the 3 students that were there for extra credit, I was the only student that was there for the poetry. I was hoping to see some of those passionate poets I saw two weeks ago at the Creative Writing Slam. I guess they were passionate about the prizes not the poetry. Oh, well, maybe I’ll see more of you next year! Stay unique!
