Presented by Michael Geffner’s, The Inspired Word
The Inspired Word is not just a little Poetry Jam. It is a forum for poets, songwriters, musicians, and artists to come and express their thoughts and reveal their soul without restriction. Founder, Michael Geffner, started with a simple vision to create a place that always invoked the freedom of expression. Instead of a simple vision, what he has done is create a haven for voices everywhere. If you’re in the New York area, don’t miss it. For Calendar Info, visit NYC Open Mic.

Brian Dykstra is a poet, playwright, and actor. He is probably the only person (other than Mos Def) to have appeared on an episode of Chappelle’s Show and HBO Def Poetry in the same season. Currently he’s writing a Hip Hop play that is actually written using the language of Hip Hop about how easy it is to sell out, even when the topic is race. He’s about to run off and play the artist Mark Rothko in the play “Red” for three months in Cincinnati and St. Louis. He is a two time star poet of the Spoken Word Almanac Project. He lives in New York City with his amazing wife. For more info, please visit http://www.briandykstra.net/.
