Held at the University of Illinois Women's Resources Center, Writ n’ Rhymed is a transformative poetic space created at the University of Illinois. It is a space for art, poetry, spoken word, music, movement, prose, rhyme, performance, and critical engagement. It is creativity—at its finest. It is open to anyone at any level of poetry experience, and we welcome those who wish to share their own work as well as work they admire. Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
