Get ready, Portland poets! Portland Poetry Slam is giving you the chance to perform your poetry during its live virtual open mic.
Or if sitting back and taking in someone else’s work is more your speed, this event is open to an audience of poetry enthusiasts.
The featured performer of the night will be Eric Sirota. Eric Sirota is a poet and public interest lawyer living in Ann Arbor, Michigan. His chapbook “Giveth and Taketh” was recently published by Wild Pressed Books. His work has been featured by Button Poetry, Entropy!, The Portland Review, and elsewhere. By day, he supervises law students who provide free legal services to veterans.
This event will be held on Zoom. The link to the event will be posted 15 minutes before it begins on the Portland Poetry Slam Facebook page.
Portland Poetry Slam will post on Facebook the day of the event for you to sign up. Each participant will have 3 minutes to read a poem. If you are reading, you will need at least microphone capabilities on your device.
The Virtual Open Mic is taking place on Sunday, May 17 at 5:30 p.m. For more information, visit Portland Poetry Slam’s Facebook event.
