There will be limited open-mike (2-minutes maximum).  No preamble please in order to maximise the poetry.  It would help if you properly time your open-mike poem prior to the gig.  We hope to have 15 or more open-mike slots if everyone co-operates.

A great place to be this Saturday afternoon 2pm-4pm.

Mc-ed by Christine Della Vedova, the venue is Moon Café, 323 William St, Northbridge.
