The Storm Crow remains open to other customers during this event; it is a family friendly restaurant. Please take this into account when selecting your poem to share on the open mic, and avoid any violent or overly explicit content. If you are uncertain if your poem falls into these categories, a content warning on the poem would be appreciated.
This event is a scent-reduced space. To assist us in our goal of increased access, please be aware of our attempt to reduce the impact of personal scented products (perfumes, scented oils, etc) in our festival spaces.
