The Inspired Mic Grows!

Thursday October 20th, The Inspired Mic enjoyed a full house audience and outstanding presentations from 14 local talents. From music, to cop stories, to poetry, to the fall of Saigon to introspective writings and many other styles of presentation, the evening was loaded with surprises, as usual.

Our host, the New Europa, is one of the strongest supporters of the arts in Flagler County. Abroz and Alida support writers at a grass roots level. They not only help us by supplying an outstanding venue, they serve delicious food, run drinks at half price during the event, and they help spread the word about our event. Michele and I had dinner at the New Europa last month, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food and atmosphere were outstanding.

Our next event will be November 17th. Please email me, Michael Ray King at if you would like to be a presenter in November. The presenter spots will fill up quickly, so please contact me right away if you would like to participate.

John Parkes won the $50 raffle at the end of the evening which was pretty cool. I believe it was his first visit to The Inspired Mic!

      • Hello, I am a local artist and poet and was referred and encouraged by Rachel Thompson Schiff to contact InspiredMic. I teach Art at UNF in Jacksonville and have shown my visual art for years in Florida, San Francisco and NY for years. Although I have always written on the sly I have only been writing seriously for a few years. I am a member of CVP (Country Voices Poetry) in Upstate NY and was recently published in an anthology, Country Voices of CVP. I have presented to the Ancient City Poets in St. Augustine as well as several venues in upstate NY where I spend summers. My newest poem is about my recent experience of being flooded and displaced by Hurricane Matthew. After reading my poem following Hurricane Matthew, my friend Rachel encouraged me to contact and present at Inspired Mic. I feel that many of my Flagler county neighbors are enduring similar loss and trauma and will relate to my recent work. I would love the opportunity to present. Thank You, Kate Miller
