Poetry Open Mic


During our last open mic, we saw that there was an interest in poems dealing with PTSD among the veteran community in Akron. We’ve also been interested in having an open mic that celebrates the North Hill community. Join us on December 2nd to hear poems at The Exchange House, the North Hill Cultural Hub. Special emphasis will be placed on poems dealing with PTSD within the veteran community in Akron, as well as poems by our friends in North Hill.
