Zoe B + Manic Mouth Congress

Manic Mouth Congress is the poetry slam collective at the UW. They host open mics, writing circles, and send a team to rep UW at the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational, where last year they came in sixth. On Thursday, I went to Manic Mouth's open mic in the attic of Cafe Allegro. The place was packed, the energy level was high - it's a real community. If you haven't been to a poetry slam before, definitely check it out. This isn't the poetry you know: it is fierce and in your face. It's also familiar, you'll catch yourself wondering how they found the perfect words to describe exactly how you feel.
