Tonight at 7:30 pm at the A-Space (4722 Baltimore Ave.), Poems Not Prisons welcomes Lovella Calica to the stage as the featured poet at their monthly Open Mic. Lovella is a poet, photographer, artist, and activist who says that she “strives to be a creator in a society that often tries to box us all in.” She has often been a regular at the open mic and now steps up for the first time as the featured poet.
The show is free but donations are welcome. There are also free refreshments – coffee, tea and vegan treats. The space is alcohol free and kids welcome! The event is hosted by DuiJi Mshinda and Martin Wiley. Poems Not Prisons is held the last Friday of every month at the A-Space.
Next month’s featured poet is Sam Barrow.
