On Saturday, Aug. 31, at 6 p.m., join hosts Judy Reeves and Steve Montgomery along with judges Michael Klam, Kristen Fogle, and Carol Moscrip for another lively session of San Diego Writers, Ink’s Open Mic Poetry Karaoke. Grab a binder filled with poems of all kinds—from Angelou to Yeats, Brooks to Whitman—and select the one you’d like to read. When your name is called, come on up and spin the Big Wheel of Musical Genres, then read your selected poem aloud to the beat of the music! Sign up to participate or simply come and enjoy the show.
The Ink Spot, 2730 Historic Decatur Rd., Barracks 16, Ste. 202, Liberty Station.
