Read reviews of Java Poetry’s open mic to get a feel for what it’s like! The Java Poetry Open Mic Meetup Group is unique in its own way in that it is not just simply an open mic for poets and writers to read their work, but it is also a place where the audience is invited to interact with the poets.
“This group is more intense than most other poetry open mics. It’s because here, at the end of a poetry reading, we will critique each other or ask questions about the poem, the writing style, the source of inspiration. This allows for the poet to receive valuable feedback so that they may better hone their skills and craft of poetry.” – Nathan Richardson
