Do you remember being in college and attending a spoken word event for the first time?  You went with your friends expecting people to recite the classics but ended up being floored by the vivid contemporary genre?

I do! I loved it!  Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to experience it again.

If you’re the literary type and are looking to find someone just as into spoken word as you are, you can’t find a better city in the US than NYC.  There’s no shortage of venues from The Bowery Poetry Club to the Nuyorican Poets Cafe to Penny’s Open Mic at St. Mark’s Place.

For even more venues and dates, check out this Eventbrite listing.

I plan on stopping by one of these in the near future and will definitely post an update.  Of course, you’re more than welcome to share your reviews below!

Have a great weekend! [snaps fingers and exits stage right].
