The critically acclaimed and award winning VERSES: THE OPEN MIC EXPERIENCE presented by Upside Marketing, is Richmond Virginia’s longest running poetry event, and the base of the Verses crew consisting of poets, lyricists, and singers. Verses has been running for 11 years in RVA and for 5 years in Washington DC!
I was awakened by a string of phone alerts from friends and loved ones saying Verses was in the newspaper on 6/23/15! Low and behold — there we were in a story about open mics in RVA!! Thank you to the Richmond Times-Dispatch(RTD), and their wrtier Laura Faith Kebede, and photographer Daniel Sanglib for covering Tuesday Verses and all of the other wonderful open mics that take place in RVA with such a great article! Pick up a copy of the article in today’s paper, to check out the story on the rich written and musical open mic scene we have in Richmond (or just click the link below lol)! Shouts to Verses staff member Jamila J, poet Charles Pitman, Slam Richmond, Lyricistlab Slam, and Jamil Dee Jasey who are also mentioned or visually featured in the article! WE LIVE LOVE.
