Are you one of those secretive poetry writers, afraid to admit your hobby lest you be outed as an angsty 16-year-old?
Sometimes you want to go where no one knows your name.
Take, for instance, the Art6 Gallery (6 East Broad St., Richmond, Va.), where poetry readings and open-mic nights come in all colors, shapes and sizes, mixed in with live rock during River City Secrets.
The next one is Friday, Jan. 13 from 7 to 9 p.m., with a $5 cover charge -- and there's no additional fee to sign up to perform. Don't be afraid. You are among friends/strangers (choose whichever makes you less nervous).
