Barbed Wire Open Mic Series
Barbed Wire Open Mic Series is a monthly open mic reading that features authors, artists, performers and musicians from a variety of backgrounds. It has presented over seventy events from 2007-2013.
BorderSenses wishes to continue working on these projects, and as they grow, our goals expand. We envision a community center where people can join writing groups, where teens can meet for creative writing workshops, we imagine drum circles, reading clubs, open mics; we imagine a place where people at large can have access to the artistic talent that conforms our organization and our community.
BorderSenses Literary and Arts Journal has published 19 volumes from 2000-2013. Includes work by authors writing in English and/or Spanish, translations and visual art from all over the world.
BorderSenses is dedicated and proud to offer venues for artists and writers to share their art. Most of our programs are free and open to the public. In order to ensure that the BorderSenses literary journal and various community projects continue uninterrupted, we rely on the support of the public through sales and donations.
