Catalyst Poetry Open Mic – Unfinished Business

October 4, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
21686223_2332961603596306_4328705726365122527_n

NOTE: later start time! Open Mic with optional theme: Unfinished Business.

Usual place but note the special later start time to accommodate Canterbury Poets Collective on earlier in the night - see our post about that.
