VOCAB presents: Release and Prelim for Indy Pride Poet Laureate

We are excited to be apart of the journey of so many artists in Indianapolis. This month's show will be featuring the latest releases from some of our favorite artists.

Sylvia Thomas with the release of DIVINE (written by Sylvia Thomas, foreword and edited by Elle Roberts) is a series of poems reflected on my experiences with sex, religion, love, divinity, and my trans body. In order to heal my spirit, faith, and womanhood from the violence I have experienced, my own self-love became my religion

Gritty of Gritty & The Craftsman with his latest release

Join VOCAB, Iconoclast, and Indy Pride as we band together to hunt for Indianapolis' very first Pride Poet Laureate. Kicking off as a portion of VOCAB's renowned open mic event, this series will take the form of a literary death match tournament. Anyone interested in competing must perform at VOCAB's open mic to be considered by a panel of judges and advance to the next round. Those selected to move on must appear again before judges at Iconoclast's event Thursday, May 16th. When our final few are chosen, they'll face each other one last time at a curated reading, no open mic, where each will feature for 15 minutes. This is when YOU, the audience will pick our winner! Follow along with each event and meet some of Indianapolis' premier poetry community at two of the best open mics in the city. Or if you dare, COMPETE for your shot at the title, The 2019 Poet Laureate of Indy Pride.

To participate in the prelims for the poetry death match for Indy Pride you must email esmith@indypride.org Signup is limited to 12 people and you must email to participate

Vocab: 12 year anniversary

You read that right! It's been 12 years since VOCAB began and we're going to bring back some of our heavy hitters.
We got our start at the Casba, took a couple of years off when our founder gave birth to her youngest, went back to the Casba, did a stint at the Wellington and branched off with Lingo at Shoefly. Now we're in our forever home at the Rabbit and ready to celebrate.

Featuring Januarie York, Tony Styxx, Gabrielle Patterson and more!
