continued The featured poet for OMPN is Assistant Professor at Plattsburgh University, Carol Lipszyc presenting a multi-genre event: reading rhythmic poetry, performing and singing songs, and reading an excerpt from her short story collection. Our featured performer will be followed by our regular Open Mic portion of the evening.
During the event, the gallery opens itself to performance artists of all mediums, bringing fast-paced spoken word, challenging limericks, slam poetry, softer and from the heart pieces, as well as original comedy routines and musical performances.
The range of entertainment is as broad as the performers themselves. The performances are uncensored, open to all ages, and are a drug/alcohol free venue to offer a place really focused on expression and empowerment
Bring poems, prose, songs, comedy routines, performance pieces, or whatever else you’ve got and share with us.
Anyone interested in being a featured performer or those interested in learning more about OMPN can inquire with Ostuni at ROTAPoetry@Gmail.com.
