Photo-Journal: Performance Poetry and Open Mic Sessions!

Arguably one of the liveliest events at last year’s Bocas Lit Fest, the Abercromby Street Arcade performance poetry and open mic jam sessions proved to be no less colourful this time around. Event organizers,  prominent artists Gillian Moor and Muhammad Muwakil, were thrilled at the large turnout this year, and worked hard to organize a packed programme of readings for the festival’s duration. We’d like to congratulate all the open mic readers for their courage in sharing their talent with other writers and lovers of literature. Who knows? One or several of these flourishing performers could be vying for the OCM Bocas Prize in a not-too-distant future!
