SpokenWord info

Chat noirSpokenWord is an open mic every Monday/lundi except August. For years we were the only anglophone one in Paris!

8.30pm till midnight
Au Chat Noir, 76, rue Jean Pierre Timbaud, 75011 Paris
Métro Parmentier/Couronnes

Free entry. Exit one euro.

SpokenWord’s format:

  1. Sign up on the night 8pm until the first round starts.
  2. Spoken word (poetry, prose, stand up, anything): you get 5 minutes, with a warning bell at 4.45 to let you know you have 15 seconds to finish.
  3. Acoustic songs: you get to do one whole song, 5 mins or even a bit longer.
  4. We do 2 or 3 rounds of 8 five minute slots, starting 8.30pm.
  5. Cinderella rule: we finish at midnight. (To chat & socialise…)

The atmosphere is very supportive of anyone having a go.

  4. Hi! I’m the redhead who sits in the back who hasn’t read anything yet but WILL! In the meantime, I was wondering if any of the organizers has an e-mail / contact I could reach out to? I have a few freelance writing gigs that I’d love to pass on to anyone who might be interested.
