Whether you’re published or a pupil, poet or spoken-word practitioner, rhymer or free verser, this is your time to shine! Dust off that old notebook and collect your most recent musings. Kitchen Sync welcomes all voices to be heard. Performers will take turns reading their work aloud at the mic for an encouraging and open-minded audience. Shy or simply a supporter? You’re invited to lend a listening ear and lots of finger snaps!

Each month a prompt will be announced at the beginning of the meeting. Poets are invited to take it home, use the word in any configuration (adjective, noun, participle, present past, etc.) and return the next month to read their interpretation for the crowd. We’ll start off each meeting with the poems related to the theme. Don’t worry if you miss a month; we’ll post the prompt here for your reference.

The Greater Denton Arts Council is an inclusive organization that values diversity and equality in all forms. We strive to foster an environment that promotes empathy for and combats discrimination against the variety of human stories found within the vibrant Denton community.

Event is open to all ages

February Prompt


Propinquity can mean physical proximity, a kinship between people, or a similarity in nature between things. The effect of propinquity is profound – office romances are a perfect example of how propinquity affects someone’s psyche and body. Never underestimate the intimacy of propinquity, which sneaks in so unobtrusively we barely, rarely sense it happening. This month we ask you to describe an incidence of propinquity. By all means slip the word ‘propinquity’ into your poem, if you can. It’s a big word, an awkward word, a word most of us don’t know, but which affects us all. Witness the homage we pay to propinquity this month as we send our valentines hither and thither in a strange flurry of affection to lovers, friends and strangers.
