One of the hottest open mic spots in Hampton Roads, Illustrations, finds a new home for its poetically creative minds at The Hamptons Golfcourse Clubhouse!
Illustrations: Fushion of Spoken Word and Art That Speaks is hosted by Seven M Pierce and is an open mic for poets and an open mural for artists while also featuring the sounds of real hip hop. Poets speak on the mic while artists sketch murals!
“The real reason why I put Illustrations together is because I wanted people to understand they have purpose. I want you to understand that you’re on this Earth to answer a question that’s placed within it [your purpose]. So your answer, until that answer is fully met… you still need to be here, so you’re needed!” – Seven M. Pierce
So poets and artists… you are needed! Your purpose is to come support Illustrations and its new move to The Hamptons Golfcourse Clubhouse!

Tonight, June 9th, Illustrations begins with its poetry open mic session from 7:00pm – 9:15pm. Then the fun continues from 9:15pm – 11:00pm, when Illustrations features a battle of poetic minds which will be different this time around!
Illustrations’ previous Battle of the Sexes, will instead be an individual battle where each poet’s poetry is battled against others with one reigning victorious versus the usual men versus women.
The battles of poetic minds has proven to be epic and must-see entertainment! Tonight’s battle topics, which each poet has written a poem on are:
- What We Made in the 80’s
- If More Kids Were Poets
- Vagina Dialogue
So come on out and get your minds fed with poetic truth and insight! Come to listen or come to entertain! If you’re a poet, why not challenge yourself with writing prompts on these battle topics and see what comes to mind? Then, come out to share your poetic thoughts or just come and see what other poets in the 757 had to say about these topics!
