Mics Wide Open

Mics Wide Open Wilmington-based Arts collective intent on providing spaces and platforms for artists while also serving the community. Come down to Bottega on Princess Street the second Saturday of every month for Fresh Ink, an open mic for all artists, writers, comedians, playwrights, hosted by Benjamin Baker.

The fourth Saturday of every other month, we descend on Bottega again to host the Not So Secret Secret Show, an open mic hosted by The Fifth Horseman guaranteed to bring out some of the electric, heartfelt wordsmiths in the area. On the alternate fourth Saturday we host our Mic's Wide Open Soul Slam, a competitive, spirited, fun, and thanks to the talents of host TMi, often dramatic. Poets pay to

Wilmington lost a legend today.

Rather we announced it or not, Joy “Livity” James WAS and IS not just Mics Wide Open, she WAS and IS the Wilmington Poetry community.

We love her. We love you.

Rest Easy Livity.

Mice Wide Open would like to personally send a congratulations to two of Wilmington’s top poets/National and regional Champions/hosts/teachers/philanthropists/activists/organizers/leaders Kelly Rae and LB as they join together in marriage.

All of us, individually and as a whole count you both as a privilege to know, engage, and befriend.

Thank you for everything, and congratulations on becoming Wilmington’s First (Power) Couple of Poetry!

Miss y’all. 💛🖤
In case this would interest anyone... the national poetry slam is in Denver CO Aug 8-12... currently, tickets round trip to Denver are literally less than $200 rn from RDU. I think I'm going to make that trip (especially with Andrea Gibson hosting the LGBTQIA open mic on Aug 9th!), so if anyone else was interested, maybe we could save some money with lodging, etc. Hit me up if this sounds like your kind of thing! ☺️😘
