Seize the stage this World Poetry Day!

Calling closet poets, published authors and all lovers of verse - it's time to carpe diem!

When was the last time you exercised your right to write? This year, in honour of World Poetry Day, Kommune is bringing poets together in all their vulnerability and honesty. This is a poets' society that's very much alive.

Join poetry open mic that's being hosted in 10 different cities across India, all on the same day! This is more than just an open mic - it is a celebration of poetry, life and togetherness.

Rules of the open mic

  1. Every attendee who wants to perform will put their name in a hat and the host will pick out performers at random.
  2. Time limit per performer is 4 minutes.
  3. Poetry in all languages is allowed.
  4. The poems do not have to be on any theme. You can perform about anything, but no hate speech/swear words are allowed.
