Open MIC Poetry Reading/Spoken Word Ms. Rhoda's Wine Garden Richland, WashingtonOn August 28, September 4, 11, 18 and 25, 6:00 in the evening, there will be an open mic poetry reading/spoken word event at Ms. Rhoda's Wine Garden located at 701 Jadwin Avenue in Richland, Washington.

About the Event
Participating in an open mic poetry reading/spoken word can be a lot of fun. Some people attend just to listen and others to try out a new poem for an audience. It’s a great way to meet other writers in your area as well. Each poet is called to step up to the microphone and read a poem or two.

Here are some general public speaking tips to get you started:

  • DO keep it short
  • DO try to eliminate filler from your speech, as in “um, uh, well, yeah” and do speak clearly into the microphone. 
  • DO look at the audience when you can. Eye contact will always energize a performance. 
  • DO relax and have a good time! If you look comfortable in front of a crowd, the crowd will feel comfortable looking at you.

For more information please call 509-713-9446.
