This June, we sponsored a literary reading/spoken word event at Under Grounds Coffee. The event was hosted by CSUSM’s Creative Writing Community Workshop (CWCW). Meagan Huerta, Jermane Cooper, Joanna Baguio, Karla Cordero, Ryan Allen Kelly, Mario DeMatteo, Jessica Mulqueen, Wyatt Reno, Jane Sim, and Stephen Di Padova shared their poems and stories. Readers included CWCW members, recent CSUSM graduates, Palomar Poets, and a student of San Marcos High School.
The event was a success and Under Grounds Coffee has invited us to host Open Mics on the third Thursday of each month. We plan to hold the next open mic on Thursday, July 19th and call this recurring event “Thir Thur.” We encourage any and all community members to dazzle us with your poems and other written works, but can’t guarantee a “pg” performance. More information soon!
