After a successful relaunch of "Spoken Word" in October, the Converge Gallery, 140 W. Fourth St., has announced another night of "Spoken Word" is scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. Friday.
"Spoken Word" offers a judgment-free environment to share your talents and welcomes all talents that pertain to the word.
For "Spoken Word" the setup is simple; the mic is open to anyone interested in reading poetry, prose, freestyle verses, dramatic reading, jokes and more. Performances are to be kept to less than 5 minutes so others have enough time to participate. Speakers may even sign up for more times, time permitting.
October's event brought a new first for "Spoken Word." The gallery welcomed comedian Jimmy Bodnar to the stage as he performed a quick 5-minute comedy routine.
"I was really delighted to see a comedian actually take the stage this time around," said John Yogodzinski of the Converge Gallery. "It brings a nice mix to the event. I think the audience really enjoyed his style of humor and we hope to add more this month."
All are welcome - even if one just wants to listen rather than participate.
Coffee will be provided by Alabaster Coffee and will only b one dollar per cup.
Sign-ups for the speakers will begin at 6:30 p.m.
