WANL & Spoken Word St. John’s Presents… National Poetry Month Write-In + Open Mic!

April 25, 2021 at 7 p.m.

Spoken Word St. John’s and The Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador are ecstatic to announce that we have partnered for a Write In/Open Mic collaboration!
At 7:00, there will be a Write-In with WANL – Write-Ins are open to WANL Members and the general public of all writing levels, genres and more. Established in the summer of 2019, Write-In is a safe space for established and aspiring writers to share their work – a place to chat about their goals, seek feedback, and more.
SWSJ Poetry Open Mic to follow at 8:00, and a special performance by Travis House(less).
We are so excited to see your masked faces at The Ship Pub on Sunday, April 25!
There will be a signup sheet on-site for our Open Mic portion of the evening if you’re keen.
Wear yer mask!
Due to COVID capacity is 40 people so show up early to secure your seat!
➡️ Travis Houseless⬅️
Spending the last decade on the road, Travis’ poetry drifts between themes of freedom, purpose, death, spirituality and romance, swinging away at these archetypes in between hitchhiking rides.
Since he has returned home, Travis has been setting up at the Farmers Market doing freestyle poetry for folks on his typewriter. Given only a topic or word, and a couple of minutes, he crafts a personalized sentiment one can take home, in an attempt to bring the art back into the community.
Last year he released his first collection of poetry titled “All I Brought Back” and is currently chipping away at his second book, yet to be titled.

RSVP to the Facebook Event!
