Poetry In The Brew

Nashville’s longest running open mic poetry event, Poetry in the Brew celebrates 8 years in 2019. Poets, spoken word artists, and storytellers are welcomed in to support one another and share in turn.

The February featured poet is Cassidy Martin.

Cassidy Martin was raised all over Nashville. She has been writing since she was 12 and has had her nose stuck in a book all her life. She works at the Nashville Public Library and considers downtown her home. She attends Trevecca Nazarene University pursuing a degree in Communications but is open to other ideas. She likes creating visual and verbal art, but she only sings in the shower. With a mixture of natural leadership, religious optimism, heavy satire, and genuine sincerity, she lives life by pushing through the cracks of the sidewalk with open petals. She hopes to water her fellow humans with liquid courage and life experiences disguised as poetry.

A willingness to engage with topics of any nature, whether graphic, explicit, or simply human, characterizes Cassidy’s potent writing. The following poem of hers may touch sensitive areas, where poetry can do true work.

The event is held at Portland Brew East, upstairs in the coffeehouse’s loft, a rotating art show provides the backdrop for this intimate space.

On the second Saturday of each month, signup for the open mic is first come first served, starting at 5:30pm.
