Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Janet Kuypers’ “Time to Start the Show” 5/6/17 poetry feature @ Austin’s the Baha’i Center

    Since the evening was about hosting open mics by “Honoring Open Mic Hosts”, Janet Kuypers started with a poem about going to open mics, then a poem dedicated to the previous host of the poetry open mic Janet Kuypers ran for over half a decade in Chicago, then the first and last poems Janet Kuypers read at her Chicago open mic, and then poems about the troubles and the joys of hosting a poetry open mic. Her “Time to Start the Show” show was also accompanied by music played live in a past reading of hers at 2017 Austin Rhythm Fire from 3/20/17.

    Before the show started she also released copies of a chapbook of the writings she was performing in her show (in the order they were performed), and all of the pieces from this reading were also released electronically in a “Time to Start the Show” chapbook, which you can download as a PDF file for free any time.
