Society of the Spoken Word February Event

sosThis month’s Society of the Spoken Word takes place at the usual venue. On Tuesday Feb. 26 , 2013 from 9 – 11 pm the Second Cup in downtown Barrie will be host to the event. As always, the first hour will feature an exceptional guest reader. The second hour will be open-mic, where anyone who wants to share their poetry or prose is welcome to take center stage. Come out to Second Cup, located at  74 Dunlop Street East, Barrie and take in some local culture.

According to SotSW founder, Jonathan Eskedjian:

Our guest-readers for this month’s event will be the amazing Matt.Miller and Tomy Bewick! They will be performing their own style of tandem and solo spoken word pieces for you guys, so show up to support them!

January Society of the Spoken Word Event



The Society of the Spoken Word will meet Tuesday January 29, 2013 from 9-11 pm at the Second Cup in downtown Barrie. This first hour will feature Dead Poet or Writer’s. The second hour will be open-mic as usual. From the Facebook event page:

I have decided that this month will be the second round of our Dead Poets theme. However, rather than limiting it to poetry, I am opening it up to prose as well.Please show up with either:1) Up to five poems by one or some of your favorite Dead Poets 


2) Up to 5 pages of prose from one of your favorite Dead Authors
to read for our crowd! Pick from your favorites! Anything that moved you, or that you felt really said something important is fine. Please note that the “up to five poems” thing includes a 5 pages total caveat. No bringing 5 epics to read. We will not have enough time

I am hoping we get a good turnout for this, as the last one was a huge success.

See you all on Tuesday at 9!

PS: Please feel free to bring your own work, as we will still hold an open-mic at the tail end of the event.

Grab your poetry, or favourite dead author and come out and read!
