Eclectic Truth featuring Sarah Webb @ Arts Council of GBR

Join the Eclectic Truth for a special show! Sarah Webb is our featured artist, and Jaxmyne will lead a pre-show workshop! 

7:00-7:50pm: Workshop led by Jaxmyne
7:50-8:15pm: Doors open for show
8:15pm-10:00pm: Slam/Sarah Webb Feature/Open Mic

Sarah's feature will draw from two recently published collections of poems and essays: Colorism Poems and Colorism Essays and Poems. This mixed genre feature is part reading of poetry and prose; part talk on the issue of colorism, blogging, hosting an international writing contest, and publishing; and part Q&A/dialogue.

This week is the begining of our 2018 Slam Season. Each week six poets have the opportunity compete in the slam! Poets who slam will accumulate points towards Grand Slam Finals, where they can earn a spot on the 2018 Eclectic Truth Slam Team. 

Not interested in the slam? Still wanna express? The open mic is available for all interested performing artists. Slam has space for six competitors, open mic has space for 10 guaranteed performers.
