The Greater Denton Arts Council has partnered with Kitchen Sync to present a monthly open mic at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center.
Kitchen Sync is the brainchild of poets Catherine Irving and Kelly Weathers. The women will host a permanent poetry open mic from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month at the arts center, 400 E. Hickory St. The arts council and Kitchen Sync joined forces for a pilot program for an open mic night catering to spoken word artists and newbies starting in August.
Kitchen Sync assigns a theme for each month’s open mic, encouraging poets to reflect on the theme and interpret it in their work.
During the first part of each event, poets are invited to share their thoughts and musings, and then the program shifts to the open mic format.
Kitchen Sync is free, and open to poets and spoken-word fans. The next event is 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 20.
