This open mic setting, hosted by Tom Galvin, whether virtual or in person will include poets, writers, and other presenters and lots of opportunity for audience participation. Bring your personal work and if you like share or just listen in for some great writing. Live on Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture’s Facebook page and YouTube Channel.
Inspiration Corner is a free Zoom event for anyone with an interest in performing music, poetry, prose or comedy.
It is an inclusive event, open to anyone who feels inspired to perform, whatever their standard or experience. It provides an opportunity for people to share their work and gain confidence as performers in a positive, encouraging environment.
I hope it will help to ease the isolation and boredom brought about by the pandemic and be a place for people to come together as a community.
Inspiration Corner happens on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month and runs from 8pm to 930pm. Singer songwriters may perform between one and three songs and other performers may perform for a maximum of 12 minutes. All styles and genres are welcome. If there is time at the end performers can come back in.

Poetry Jam is the first Thursday of every month
Poetry Jam is an open mic night for your first poem or your fifty-first.
It's a place where the topic can go from love, to comedy, to grief in a heartbeat.
It's a place for free verse, for slam, for sonnets and for lyrics.
It's raw, uncensored and sometimes explicit.
Everyone is welcome, whether you're just here to drink in the culture, or you want to speak up and be heard.
Let us know you'll be there and grab your free ticket.
PERFORMERS, POETS, SPOKEN WORD ARTISTS!!
We ask poets to send us prerecorded videos of their performance to us for a chance to feature in the showcase, with our young hosts reacting to the performances.
WHERE TO WATCH?
