Wednesday—Sept. 23 @ 7-9pm @ Women’s Resources Center – Writ n’ Rhymed Poetic Arts Space. Held at the University of Illinois Women’s Resources Center, Writ n’ Rhymed is a transformative poetic space created on select Wednesday nights at the University of Illinois. It is a space for art, poetry, spoken word, music, movement, prose, rhyme, performance, and critical engagement. It is creativity at its finest. Our mission is to provide a forum for poetry and other spoken word to the University of Illinois campus community. It is open to anyone at any level of poetry experience, and we welcome those who wish to share their own work as well as the work of others (e.g. a favorite famous author). Come bring your poetry, your friends, and/or your listening ears! Free and open to the public!
Call for Poet Hosts!! Writ n’ Rhymed is seeking poetic hosts for our poetry open mic nights this Fall 2015 semester. As a host, you are the “face” of Writ n’ Rhymed for the night. That means you will call for poets, introduce them at the mic, ensure that the sign-up sheet gets passed around, and set the stage. Prepare your own pieces to read or bring in another’s work that you’d like to share. You are the innovator for the night, creating the theme and designing the atmosphere. Any student at the University of Illinois is welcome to host. About Writ n’ Rhymed: Writ n’ Rhymed is a series hosted by the Women’s Resources Center on campus every other Wednesday. Writ n’ Rhymed seeks to provide students with a creative space to express themselves through art, poetry, spoken word, music, movement, prose, rhyme, performance, and critical engagement. Writ n’ Rhymed is always free and open to the public; bring your friends! Refreshments will be provided. Should you require any accommodations (assistance with food and seating, large print programs, an ASL interpreter, visual/audio assistance, etc.), please contact us at your earliest convenience, 217-333-31337 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
