Open Mic Night
Wednesday, November 8th
Our monthly open mic nights are much anticipated. We always have a fantastic featured reader to open the event and then the mic is open to anyone who wants to participate. It's a chance to share your work, hear what peers have been working on, and make connections with faculty and fellow students in the English program. Anyone is welcome! You don't need to be an English major to participate. It's a very relaxed and encouraging environment, and it's a great way to ease into sharing your work publicly; a rite of passage for any writer. Please join us! Next date is Wednesday, November 8th at 5:30pm over zoom. Our featured author will be Kareem Tayyar.
Kareem Tayyar's work has appeared in publications including Poetry Magazine, Prairie Schooner, Alaska Quarterly Review, and North Dakota Quarterly, and his most recent book, Keats in San Francisco & Other Poems, was published in 2022 by Lily Poetry Review Books. His previous collections include Let Us Now Praise Ordinary Things (Arroyo Seco Press) and Magic Carpet Poems (Tebot Bach), while his coming-of-age novel, The Prince of Orange County (Pelekinesis Books), received the 2020 Eric Hoffer Prize for Young Adult Fiction. A Professor of English at Golden West College, he holds a Ph.D. in Literature from U.C. Riverside.
