WordHorde brings together students, faculty, and community members who all share a passion for both the spoken and written word.  Coordinated by students in the English program, Wordhorde offers roughly monthly open-mic events where a featured performer -- a local, regional, or sometimes nationally recognized author -- headlines an evening of poetry, stories, music, theatrics, and comedy.

Participation is open to anyone who wants to join in the celebration.

Upcoming Event

  • Thursday, Sept. 26 - Featured Performer and Open Mic - 7:30 p.m.

(Place is West Wing of Savage Library)

WordHorde is pleased to present internationally and nationally acclaimed poet JARED SMITH as our featured artist. Author of ten volumes of poetry, two spoken word CDs and two multi-media stage productions in New York and Chicago, Smith gives readings, workshops and lectures at universities, colleges, libraries and similar institutions throughout the United States.
