Got a knack for poetry? Want to showcase your spoken word creativity? Are you a clever wordsmith? Bring your talent to the masses with Thomas Nelson’s open-mic Poetry Coffeehouse Series. Sponsored by Student Life and Leadership, the open-mic gatherings will take place throughout fall semester at campuses in Hampton and the Historic Triangle, Williamsburg.

Students, faculty, staff and community members are welcome to share their original work or favorite poem. Featuring English faculty Tom Rockson and Janice Hoffman along with Distance Learning Librarian Bob Harrison as facilitators, the free series will also include refreshments. 

Also open to spectators, the 1 – 2 p.m. Poetry Coffeehouse Series will take place in the library at the Historic Triangle campus, and Diggs Hall’s room 158 in Hampton with a different theme each month.
