Share your love poems at Downtowne Coffee House

It’s the season of love poems, and the Coffee House Poets are hosting their monthly open-mic at 6:30 p.m., on Thursday, February 12 at the Downtowne Coffee House in Talent. This month’s suggested poetry theme is “What is Love.” Poets can share their romantic writing or completely ignore the theme and share whatever the heck they wish. Though really, a good love poem is always a treat.

This is a terrific group of supportive poets and a great mix of regulars and newbies. If you’ve never read your work in public, the Downtowne Coffee House is one of the warmest and most welcoming venues in the area.

The Downtowners also have two contests for participants. One is just for poets who can truthfully write the sentence “I have never won a prize in a poetry contest” on their entries. The other is for everyone else.

The rules are simple and few:
1. Each entry must have been premiered at the Downtowners’ open mic.
2. Submit two copies. The first includes name, full address, phone number, and email address. The second will not have any author identification.
3. There is no limit to the number of submissions, but the poems must have been read at the open mic. There is no fee for entering. Prizes are funded out of audience donations.
4. The deadline for the 2015 contest is March 12, 2015.
5. Prizes will be awarded at the coffee house on April 9, 2015.

The Downtowne Coffee House is at 200 Talent Avenue, in Talent. For more information call (541) 535-2299.
