Spoken Word Lounge & Open Mic

Can-I-Poet Spoken Word Lounge and Open Mic is an event series where students come and express themselves artistically. Students share poetry, spoken word, songs and raps, but the series is not limited to just these forms of expression. Can-I-Poet welcomes all forms of expression, including instrumental performances, monologues, even visual art! Can-I-Poet also invites a few professional artists each year to share with the campus community, including such well known performers as Oveous Maximus, Carlos Andrés Gómez, and Black Ice. Can-I-Poet also produces a publication each year, and accepts submissions of student visual art and written word.
