Open Mic Poetry started on Saturday, June 10 at the Tryon Coffeehouse in downtown Tryon, and will continue on the second Saturday of each month. 

Poets can read up to five minutes of their own work, or another’s poetry that inspires them. Those reading others’ works are asked to credit the author.
