Experience a diverse open mic with artists from all backgrounds in a positive and inspiring atmosphere. Peoria’s Open Mic for Poetry is held on the 1st Thursday of each month. Host: Ryan Lowry, DJ: Yvaine Washington


Each month the open mic features a popular regionally known poet. Poets from as far away as Maryland, Missouri and Florida have graced the stage. Regardless of a poet’s level of experience, everyone is welcome to share his or her work.

Audiences experience more than just someone reading from a page. Poets often memorize the piece and perform it as in a stage play. These are often soul-baring performances that might make you weep or laugh out loud. One thing is for certain, this is an entertaining and stimulating event. Join us on the 2nd floor, in the Preston Jackson Gallery.


Featured Poet: Louis Conphliction

Louis Conphliction isn't an entertainer, he is Entertainment! Whether ravaging sixteen bars, serenading love interests, or igniting our inner most passions with poetry, you are bound to request Louis Conphliction's presence inside of your hearts, minds, and homes.  St. Louis, MO was his first stage, being born and raised under the Arch; Louis was influenced by the dark beauty of St. Louis. Louis has decided to use his talents to create a movement around self-love, self-worth, self-respect and self-awareness to eclectic beats and empowering words.  www.facebook.com/LouConPhliction www.youtube.com/LouisConPhliction www.twitter.com/LouCon3
