Open mic night planned Nov. 2 at WSU Tri-Cities

An open mic poetry reading starts at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 2 in the East Building Auditorium on the Washington State University Tri-Cities campus in Richland.

"We have had performance poets, hip-hop poets, cowboy poets, rhyming or free verse poets, even chanting poets," said poet Leonard Orr.

Orr is academic director for WSU Tri-Cities College of Liberal Arts, as well as an English professor, published poet and host of the monthly open mic events.
