The New York Film Academy is excited to host its first ever Spoken Word, Beats, Rhymes & Poetry Open Mic Night at its Union Square location on Thursday, September 10th.

To kick things off, our first event will feature Bronx living legend, La Bruja, who is considered one of America’s leading spoken word poets. In 2014 she was awarded Comité Noviembre’s Puerto Rican Women Legacy Award. In 2013, she earned The Edgar Allan Poe Award for excellence in writing from The Bronx Historical Society, and was honored as A Bronx Living Legend by The Bronx Music Heritage Center.

Also hosting this star-studded night will be Brooklyn’s own Manny Lavan, with music by Flip the Script Radio’s DJ C-Reality and the band Sunny Daze. To top it off, our special guests include El Da Sensei, Ren Thomas, Emskee & Saint of the Good People.

If you’d like the opportunity to perform alongside these New York City spoken word elites, open mic signs up begin at 7PM, with performances starting at 8PM.
