Poetry Jam | First Thursday of Every Month | 200 Degrees Coffee Shop, Birmingham | 7 til 9pm
A monthly open mic platform to jam, perform and click with a community of creatives.
Free entry. Starting promptly at 7pm to fit as many performers in as possible (advised to come early to get the best seats).
Want an open mic slot? Arrive 15 minutes before the night kicks off to sign up to the open mic list.
We welcome everyone and embrace key principals of individuality, love, innovation and creativity! The night is a beautiful combination of first time & just-starting-out poets to established & confident poets. It's a non-genre specific open mic night where pieces can go from love, to comedy to very personal topics - we don't audit or alter the artistic work so be prepared and be aware that sensitive topics and explicit words may be used.
You may hear clicking throughout the evening, this is when someone in the audience agrees, feels a vibe and/or appreciates a particular flow, style or message. Poetry Jam is a safe space for people to have their first time on a mic, meet like minded people, or just get completely absorbed in unique, raw and honest spoken word pieces.
