TL;DR – Theme: “Satire“. The poems should preferably pertain to the theme (not mandatory). Register here for the event on May 10th, 2021 at 19:00.
Verse It! is a monthly poetry meetup that will see poetry coming to life, through reading, music, art and any other forms of artistic expression. Through our events, Verse It! will bring young poetic voices and seasoned ones under the same roof to share their creations. We welcome cupfuls of expression ranging from joy, angst and love to envy, rebellion and more.
Poetry knows no description nor does it know any identity. As a result, the element of poetry, although sedate and unassuming on the exterior, is a brimming volcano of passion and a wild tsunami of colours and energy on the inside. It is this colourful energy that Verse It! is tapping into.
Shed your shackles and be part of the experience every month on the second Monday of the month.
