Poetry in Paris

If you find yourself at a loose end in Paris of a Monday night, like tonight, try this out.

Girls' Guide to Paris

English-language poetry reading in the 20th Arrondissement that takes place every Monday night from October through the winter.

The rotating MC, identifiable by a top hat, comes around before the show and asks if anyone is interested in signing up. Spoken Word takes place at the Culture Rapide bar, in the happening neighborhood of the Belleville Chinatown.

They're on facebook
and here

rue de Belleville, in the 19th Arrondissement. 

I read here in September and they were a friendly, diverse crowd from France, UK, Australia, Ireland, USA and Eastern Europe.
