About Us

Welcome to the Poetry & Open Mic Society!

If you want to be a chill space with like-minded individuals who have also trauma from Wattpad stories, this is the place to be!

Alongside having poetry prompt evenings, movie nights and deep conversations, we make sure to create a safe space for all our members to feel comfortable to share and cultivate their art. Poetry is not only found in the pages of Shakespeare, it is found in rap, in culture, in spoken word, all of which we believe are important to spreading important messages. This is why we also base some of our work on contemporary issues such as climate change and various humanitarian conflicts.

Some of our events include:

- Rap/ Spoken Word/ Open Mic Nights

- Game Nights

- Visiting local Open Mic events in Canterbury

- Collaborating with local bookstores and cafes to host performances

- End of Semester Poetry performance and display

As well as the end of semester performances, one of our goals is to produce a published anthology gathered with everyone's work. So, if any of these events interest you, come along to one of our sessions, each guaranteed with baked treats from our President!
