The Middle of the Mic workshop series started as an ARTS KC funded series where touring poets would come to Kansas City to showcase their skill and talent with a workshop and feature at Uptown Arts Bar. The series saw so much support and turn-out with sold out audiences, that the series is now being extended to a donation-based monthly workshop happening second Wednesdays of each month. The workshops will be taught by local KC poets and touring poets from all over the world.
These workshops will vary depending on the teacher, but the topics covered will be performing, writing, editing, and other poetry practices that will help improve poetic skill.
June's workshop will be taught by Samantha Slupski (Slam Master of Kansas City Poetry Slam, Executive Producer of Poetic Underground, Co-director of Chameleon Arts).

Workshops are from 7-9pm at Uptown Arts Bar.
