   History: The Shockoe Poets participate in the longest-running open mike in Richmond. For more than ten years, every second and fourth Sunday a core of poets has gathered at Shockoe Espresso Roastery in Shockoe Slip to celebrate the art of performance poetry with veterans and 'poetry virgins' taking part in the proceedings. In addition to publishing an anthology chapbook containing work by various poets, small groups have traveled to other venues in the city such as Cafe Gutenberg, Carytown Books, Richmond Slam, and now art 6 for the 'Bend An Ear' series.
