I find Hamilton an intriguing place.
It’s full of places to explore, people to meet, and a lot of stuff to do.
One of the latest things to do are poetry nights at the Lyric Theatre.
Consisting of 4 portions (a workshop, an Open Mic for all ages, a Slam portion for 22 years and under, and a reading from a feature author), these evenings have captivated me since I heard about them last month.
I actually went to last month’s edition, and I loved it. I haven’t read my poetry aloud since high school, so it was great to get back to it. The crowd was receptive, and my anxiety was made things worse in my head than they actually were.
If anyone is interested in attending, the event takes place the third Tuesday of every month at the Lyric Theatre. Start time is 6pm for the workshop, 7pm for the Open Mic and Slam. It’s $2 for everyone 18 and under to compete, and $5 for everyone 19 and over. (For rules and things like that, the site is: burlingtonslam.wordpress.com)
Good luck to everyone who comes out and reads!
