The Rubber Flower Poetry Hour is a new Open Mic series in New Orleans, LA. Every second Wednesday of every month.
We offer space for fresh and pickled writers alike to spill their guts. Aside from hate speech, there is no limit to what you perform and how you perform it. We strive to maintain a supportive, open, and safe space for poets to express themselves. Note that even though this is a Poetry Hour, we allow all forms of storytelling. We want you to be heard.
The Format: 30 — 45 minutes for featured readers (1-3 poets); 60 — 90 minutes of open mic time, about 6 minutes per reader. We try to cap it off about 15 readers per night.
We gather at the Rubber Library and Flower Bodega in the Bywater, across from Frady’s.
