Saints, Sinners, Poets: A Poetry Open Mic, Featuring Dennis Hinrichsen

Thursday, September 19, 2019 | 8 PM
Saints and Sinners Lounge Patio

Tonight, the good times don’t end with Uncorked Happy Hour! Stick around after the music for our first poetry open mic at 8 PM. Poets are welcome to sign up for a reading slot beginning at 7:45 PM, and may read one poem each. This open mic will feature poet and educator Dennis Hinrichsen, Poet Laureate Emeritus of the Greater Lansing Area. Poets and writers of all backgrounds and experience levels are welcome to join us for this relaxing evening of wine, conversation, and poetry!

This event is open to people of all ages; however, we ask that you consider the intense themes and language sometimes present in poetry. We will not tolerate hateful or violent speech, but will not censor otherwise impassioned work. Therefore, this event may not be suitable for young children. Cash bar and appetizers will be available in the Saints and Sinners Lounge.
