The Rubber Flower Poetry Hour is an Open Mic poetry series in New Orleans, LA.
We offer space for fresh and pickled writers alike to spill their guts. Aside from hate speech, there is no limit to what you perform and how you perform it. We strive to maintain a supportive, open, and safe space for poets to express themselves. Note that even though this is a Poetry Hour, we allow all forms of storytelling. We want you to be heard.
The Format: 30 – 45 minutes for featured readers (1-3 poets); 60 – 90 minutes of open mic time, about 6 minutes per reader. We cap it off at 10 open mic readers per night. If you want to sign up, get there early!
