Open Mic Event! — Two days away!

Before some of you head off into what’s sure to be a luxurious Spring Break, mark your calendars for the next open mic event at GCC.

  • When: Wednesday, March 23rd at 7:00PM
  • Where: GCC Main – Student Union, Room 104E
  • Why: It provides your daily dose of vitamin C.

The event is free, open to the public, but not recommended for children. So, bring what you’ve been working on and regale everyone with your talent. Hosted by Shawnte Orion, the open mic portion of the evening will begin at 7PM, and the night will conclude with a reading from featured guest, Joel Salcido.

Born a Los Angeles cockroach and smuggled to the Westside of Phoenix, Joel Salcido translates the poetry of the barrio pigeons into surrealist prophecies. He is blessed with a beautiful wife and two sons as well as a cadre of talentedly mad brothers, friends, coconspirators and fellow hood radicals. He writes poetry and prose and is working towards a mastery of arts while building a boat out of editor’s rejection letters to float back to the moon. Joel is an MFA candidate in poetry at Arizona State University.

    Tonight’s event was great. Joel is a very talented and passionate writer. He has written some great poems that we could benefit from at our next open mic in April, The Social Justice Open Mic. We also had some great readings from some other writers such as Roderick, Tristan, Gina, myself, Shawnte, and a few others. Shawnte also has a new book recently published. I was wondering, when are the copies of the new Traveler going to be available? Anyway, ya’ll missed an awesome reading. Hope to see more of you at the next one. See you on campus!
