From the Inbox comes this announcement from our favorite Baguio book shop:
"Third Monday from the Sun" is a free, monthly open mic event for poetry and spoken word at Mt Cloud Bookshop inside the Casa Vallejo building on Upper Session Road, Baguio City. On Aug. 20, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Mt Cloud Bookshop will hold its second open mic evening for poets of all ages and all walks of life.
This is not a contest. It is a poetry reading for anyone and everyone who wishes to share original poems and performance pieces with a warm, receptive audience.
In celebration of our second anniversary this August, we are giving away small tokens to the poets who come to read or perform. As is always in the bookshop, everyone is welcome.
