Our Friends at the Poetry Society of NH…

Join Us for “Open Mic Night for Teens” at Concord’s Market Days Festival


An “Open Mic Night for Teens” will be held 7 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, July 18, during the Concord Market Days festival.


The event is sponsored by the New Hampshire Poetry Society, New Hampshire Poetry Out Loud and the Concord Public Library Foundation and will be held at the festival’s “South Main Street Park,” next to Red River Theater.

Students may read an original work or the work of another poet. Last year, several high school students who participated in the Poetry Out Loud program recited the poems they performed during the statewide competition.

Students are asked to present for no more than three (3) minutes and may be invited to read a second poem, time permitting. Each student who registers for and recites at the event will receive a gift certificate to a downtown Concord merchant.


Registration is first-come, first-served. Please contact Gordon Lang of the Poetry Society of New Hampshire at poetsintheattic@gmail.com.  That’s the best way to guarantee your spot at the mic, though we will work in walk-ons as time allows.  (Hint, hint:  invite your friends.)


For more information you can also contact the Concord Public Library Foundation at info@concordlibraryfoundation.org.
