In our efforts to continue as an online platform for writers and creators, we've already planned a variety of different projects throughout 2021 and beyond. In additon to our Monday night online open mics, we plan on launching a variety of other highlight showcases including collaborative poetry video projects, or "Mixtapes."
We've kicked off the year with our very first Mixtape centered around the theme of Valentine's Day. We put out a call for submissions with a quick turnaround (5 days). We received some pretty great submissoins from poets located in El Paso, Las Cruces, and all over.

As always, the more you interact with the video helps promote our content in Youtube's algorithm. That's why Youtubers are always asking their viewers to "Like, Comment, & Subscribe." We definitely enrourage at least two of the three. No pressure.
Here is the tracklist of this video mixtape which not only features the name of each piece, but a place where you can follow each performer and send a virtual tip to them if you desire (Support Artists whenever Possible). If you can't donate money, you can also support by sharing the video with your networks.
