Remember My Name Poetry Slam and Open Mic

The Fort Worth National Poetry Slams will host a special tribute to women survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault called Remember My Name. Its sole purpose is to invite poets to share their work during an open mic format to promote social awareness about domestic violence via the powerfully passionate display of performance poetry and spokenword. This event will be held in the safe space that is the Dock Bookshop and is hosted by Mike Guinn-MSW, a renowned social activist, poet, and author who has been highly succesful in coordinating emotion fused events that fuel social awareness movements. This is a national poetry slam venue currently in its 16th year of providing a consistent weekly open mic forum for positive self expression. For more information, please visit www.mikeguinn.biz or call (972) 704-5001.
