Who We Are

The purpose of this organization shall be to connect an active community of readers, writers, and critics of contemporary, experimental, avant-garde and neglected poetry to the general public who would not regularly have a chance to encounter this certain type of art. Mic Check shall serve as a forum for discussion of contemporary works and the concerns surrounding them. It will provide the foundation for communication with contemporary authors, collaboration with outside organizations, promotion of poetry to the campus community, and provide a forum for all forms of poetry.
