Poetry night and open mic at the Saville

City College’s Freshman Year Experience (FYE) Program will be hosting an Open Mic poetry night on Nov. 18 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Saville Theater.

The event, called “Expressions in Time,” is open to both City College students and community members.

Donna Carter, an FYE professor and EOPS counselor, explained the importance of this event for the student community.

“FYE professors thought this would be an excellent way to introduce FYE and all City College students to [the] growing voice of young adults who have something important to say about society,” she said in an email interview..

While there is a competitive element to the night, Carter said that having your poem scored by the judges is not mandatory.

This is the first poetry night the FYE Program has organized, and Carter said they “will wait to hear the response to [the] event” before determining the future of spoken-word poetry at City College.

Admission is $8 per person and the proceeds will go toward the City College FYE “Future Leaders” Club.
