Spoken word season wrapping up Friday

Converge Gallery will close a successful third season of spoken word this month. The gallery, located at 140 W. Fourth St., will host a last spoken word event from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Friday.

Spoken word has a simple setup: Converge Gallery turns on the mic and asks those interested in reading poetry, prose, freestyle verse, dramatic readings, stand up comedy and more keep it under five minutes.

All are welcome to participate or listen.
