No Open Mic Poetry until January 4th 2007

Beatnix Coffehouse has been on holiday vacation since Sunday December, 24th and will not re-open until Tuesday January 2, 2007. So that will give all the poets time to reflect and write some new poetry because January will be HOT Poets 1 Year Anniversary Celebration. What does that entail? Glad you asked! Every week we'll have something fun going on, including two theme nights.

The first poetry night will be Thursday January 4th. This will be theme night and it's called RESOLUTIONS-Out with the Old and In with the NEW! What kind of poetry will be shared? The answer: ALL NEW POETRY!!! Yep that's right, no old poems will be read on Resolutions Theme Night. Hopefully we will all be able to enjoy New Poetry for a New Year!!! You can write about anything, including any Resolutions you may have made for 07'.

The second poetry night will be HOT POETS 1 YR ANNIVERSARY NIGHT! This will be January 11th. On this night, I plan to have a photo/video montage to present for all the documentation of the past year. For those of you who've been faithful to Open Mic Poetry at Beatnix, my request is that you come and share what poetry at Beatnix has meant to you. I'm looking for "back then" and "now" short pieces. They can be written in poetry form or just plain ole' writing from the heart. We want to have a nice cozy night and I guess you could call it, "testimony" night. Come ready to share your feelings on poetry night and reminisce about your favorite poem or favorite night you attended. Or perhaps the first time you got up to read or the first poem your wrote. What ever you come up with is fine with me!!

The third poetry night which will be January 18th will be another theme night. The theme will be FAVORITE NURSERY RHYME, TV THEME SHOW OR LYRICS night! What does that mean? Just pick your favorite of the afore mentioned and change the words/verses and make up your own personalized poem. Just make sure it's fun and clean! Thanks!

The last Thursday of the month will be Featured Poets Night. The two Featured Poets will be Jack Larimore and Me! Come on out and share in both our personal works. Jack will also have available his second book of poetry he's just published called Metamorphosis.

And that will wrap up the start of a great New Year of Open Mic Poetry in Waco!
