CAB is throwing a Cookies, Tea, and Poetry open mic night on Thursday, October 24 in the Global Lounge of the Bernhard Center from 8 pm to 9:45pm.
Performing at Thursday's event is Mwende "FreeQuency" Katwiwa, an award winning, internationally touring writer whose work has been featured on OkayAfrica, the New York Times, For Harriet, Everyday Feminism among other publications.
Katwiwa will be performing at the beginning of the night, followed by an Open Mic for all who are interested.
“Essentially, it’s a night full of all types of performing arts!” said Kayla Lewis, Cultural Coordinator for CAB. “There will also be more than just cookies and tea! I want to make it a welcoming night where we just appreciate and watch those perform what they love to do.” said Kayla.
Whether you’ve dipped your toe into poetry, or know nothing about it, this event is a great introduction and a great way to get your own work out there.
