Hello Chicago Poetry calendar listings -

I host a weekly open mic at Uncommon Ground on Devon, every Tuesday evening. While this open mic has traditionally trucked in music performance (primarily acoustic), I'd like to open our doors and extend a welcome to area poets, who might have interest in reciting at this renowned venue. We have a great stage, and cash prizes weekly. So, please list the info as you are able, and please contact me if you require any additional information or details.

Thanks!
