Monthly Open Mic Night at Volumes

  • Volumes Bookcafe 1474 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60622 United States (map)

" 'Elegy (n): A lament for the dead; You might later compose an elegy to someone you have loved and lost to the grave. The purpose of this kind of poem is to express feelings rather than tell a story.'

November's Open Mic theme is "Elegy." Before we get swept up in the holiday season, we are taking stock of the past year, what we've loved, what we've lost, and what we'll be left with come January. 

Poetry, prose, raps, monologues, songs, email drafts - all original work is welcome, although we ask that you keep your performance to 7 minutes. 

Our sign up opens at 7pm, and the Open Mic begins at 7:30pm. The night will be wrapped up by our showcase of featured readers."
