Mic Check Open Mic Ft. Carla Pelcastre

  • Revolution Bar and Cafe 211 S Main St Bryan, TX, 77803 United States (map)

Question? "Cool Carla, how is this different than any other poetry thing you always invite us to??"

Answer: A feature means that the poet, Carla, gets to perform more than just 1 poem. Usually, in a feature, a poet performs up go 5 or 6 poems. 

So come out and get a crash course on Carla's poetry!

Bio: Carla Pelcastre is a graduate from Texas A&M with a Bachelor’s of arts in Spanish and international studies. 

Lately Carla has been living with her mom (whoop) and working at the Texas Capitol for Texas Representative Cindy Burkett. She is still getting used to life after college, but so far she hasn’t ran away so we believe she is doing relatively well. 

Carla has been a member of Mic Check for about 2 years now and considers it her true home. She published a chapbook in 2014, The Ark within Us and competed in her first individual slam festival Texas Grand Slam. 

Carla believes in three things. Food, sleep and love. If you eat enough, your heart will be happy. If you sleep enough, your heart with be happy. If you love enough, your heart will be happy (and sometimes sad, but ignore that part)

Carla is a true enthusiast of anything and everything that comes from a creative and loving place, she has a lot of feelings and thoughts and is so excited she has the opportunity to share that with you. Also, her favorite thing to ask new friends is “What is your all-time favorite compliment?”. 

So, what is your all-time favorite compliment?
