Broken Mic

Broken Mic, Spokane’s longest-running weekly poetry open mic has been alive, thriving and giving local poets a platform since it began 2011. Though the event has been happening for 13 years now, its organizers are still finding ways to shake things up. This month, Broken Mic is hosting a series featuring past Poet Laureates of Spokane. The first night, however, kicked off with Spokane’s newest Poet Laureate, Mery Smith, on Jan. 10. But never fear! You can still catch Mark Anderson (Jan. 17), Chris Cook (Jan. 24) and Thom Caraway (Jan. 31) before the series ends. And if you’re feeling brave, sign up at 6 pm the night of to read three minutes worth of poetry yourself.

Broken Mic Poet Laureate Series • Wednesdays in January; sign-up at 6 pm, show starts at 6:30 pm • Free • All ages • Neato Burrito • 827 W. First Ave. •
