Back to All Events
We've been having so many patrons rush in to read at PoetNY, and it's always difficult to be able to get through the entire list, so we're giving you twice the open mics this week! If you're feeling like beating the Sunday sign-up crowd, and spitting some poems, come to this special open mic at 6pm Monday, hosted by Scott Raven - signups and doors at 5:30pm!
You know you wanna spit your thang at an open mic, and this would be the perfect time to do it. See you there!
About the host - in his own words:
A pun-slinging PENaissance man who tours internationally with the Mayhem Poets, a dedicated teaching artist and workshop leader, playwright, short fiction writer, author, host and trained actor living in NYC.
Seen on stage with the Spoken Word Almanac Project (S.W.A.P), I’ve also appeared in Buried at the Looking Glass Theater, New Street Poets, Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night, and Gentleman’s Wish, along with a few commercials.
With Mayhem Poets I have toured to over 500 theaters, schools and colleges around the world including over 45 states, throughout Canada, Ireland, the Dominican Republic, England, Thailand and Israel. Hawaii? Dakotas?
All work and no wordplay make Scottt a pretty dull boy? As is I’m always down to clown around, red nose or not, write songs, poems and/or commercial spots. I enjoy collaborating with other creators in all mediums to break up the tedium of the day giving my all to every project along the way.
