'She Speaks' at Arts Collinwood

When: Sat., March 26 2011

After launching almost a year ago at Tremont's Visible Voice Books, She Speaks — a once-a-month evening of poetry by and for women — has relocated to larger digs at Arts Collinwood's Cafe, with a goal of inspiring, empowering, and cultivating community among females of all ages. (Men are welcome to attend, but only as audience members.) Tonight's edition runs from 7 to 10 p.m. with a poetry workshop, an open-mic session, and a slam hosted by local poets Blaire Miller Bommer and Kisha Nicole Foster. (The winner becomes part of the She Speaks slam team, headed for a national competition). Except for the small donation required from each slammer, the evening is free and open to the public; additional She Speaks events are slated for the fourth Saturday of every month at Arts Collinwood, 15605 Waterloo Rd. in Collinwood.
