Tonight's Open Mic at the Busboys and Poets in the historic Anacostia is hosted by:
Miss Kiane Ink!
Although she is a social worker by profession, she is a poet by passion. In 1997, Dinahsta launched KIANE INK. She wrote cards, poems and other writings for special events and as special gifts. In 2005, she expanded KIANE INK to include the artistry of poetic performance in which she enjoys performing poetry at special events and spoken word venues. This year; however, Kiane Ink has evolved into a perfect fusion of Dinahsta’s professional and passionate interests offering cathartic/creative writing workshops, artistic community events and individual coaching. Kiane Inkprovides a platform for hope, healing and social justice through poetry and creative expression. Because writing served as a therapeutic outlet for her during her childhood and adulthood, Dinahsta believes that poetry can help others in a similar way. In her own words, “Poetry is my friend, my catharsis….my gift to the world….”

A Busboys and Poetry event! For two hours, audiences can expect a diverse chorus of voices and a vast array of professional spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians and a different host every week. Expect to be moved, expect a packed house, expect the unexpected, but above all come with an open mind and ear.
