Join us for a FireWorks Verse Open Mic hosted by Phoenix Books' own Bianca Amira Zanella!
You are invited to a poetry pick-me-up performance with pop! People want poems more than ever during this uncertain time, so we welcome you to RSVP for another virtual pandemic poetry party. We will find comfort in each other's words, release our stress and emotional weight, and celebrate connection and gratitude. Bring your best metaphoric firework of a verse to share, or just come to listen to the show! We'll see you on Zoom!
Those interested in reading can sign up at the beginning of the meeting, via the Zoom Chat Box feature.
