Shab-e She’r Poetry Open Mic at the University of Alberta
May 30, 2023, 6:45 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Shab-e She’r is Canada’s most diverse & brave poetry open mic, hosted by Bänoo Zan, the University of Alberta’s current Writer in Residence.
This event is open to poets writing in any language from University of Alberta / Edmonton / Canada / International community.
Shab-e She’r welcomes people from all backgrounds, races, ethnicities, nationalities, ages, genders, sexual orientations, religions (or lack thereof), (dis)abilities, and poetic styles, voices, and visions.
Shab-e She’r values are diversity and freedom of expression. We believe the answer to a poem is another poem. The only limit is the time limit: 5 minutes. Come prepared to hear people from outside your communities. And, feel free to share your voice.
Join us and spread the word. Invite people who may be interested.
Open mic sign-up: 6:45
