WordPlay @ Young Chicago Authors Offices

Chicago's longest running open mic for youth is in play again! Run by Young Chicago Authors every Tuesday at their headquarters (1180 N. Milwaukee, 2nd floor), WordPlay gives teens a chance to show their friends -- and the public -- what they've got. The night starts at 6pm with a writing workshop, moves into an open mic at 7pm, and then ends with a performance by a featured poet at 8:30pm. WordPlay runs now until mid-June, so come early and come often!
