First Tuesdays, 7:00–8:30pm

November 7th would normally be our virtual, monthly poetry open mic. We will miss seeing you and hearing your poems this month and next. But we wanted to remind you that the NAA is hard at work organizing, moving, and celebrating! We have put this event on hold until the new year.

As a reminder, our plan is to resume poetry open mic as a hybrid event in the new year, as soon as we are settled into our new location. We will send out updates as these plans solidify. If you have been searching for new connections in 2024, consider becoming one of our open mic volunteers! Email me to find out more.

Pamela Draper, Executive Director,

About this event:
The Newark Arts Alliance holds a monthly Open Mic Night dedicated to poetry, prose, and performance every first Tuesday at 7:00pm. Traditional poetry, spoken word, haiku, experimental verse – all are welcome! Short-shorts of fiction and memoir – tell us your stories! A performance piece? An acoustic music performance? Go for it! Join us at the mic or just come to listen and support the arts.

Please email Pamela to ask to be added to the Open Mic Audience list. Her email is: Your email will be added to the Open Mic Audience Address book and you will be sent updates and the zoom links each month. We may be offering an in-person event in 2024. Watch for announcements!
