A new open and mic and poetry slam series gets off the ground this week at the Canvas. Organized by Christy NaMee Eriksen, who recently opened a weekly Haiku stand at the Canvas, and Na Haan, the poetry slam is planned for every third Friday of every month, beginning this Friday, Oct. 15.

All poems must be original work and under five minutes in length. All ages and all levels of ability are welcome.
