Open-Mic Ratings


Some conversations last week about censorship and free expression got my brain spinning…  I have decided to implement a ratings system for the Saturday Night With The Poet’s Haven open-mics.  Here’s how the ratings break down:


Family Friendly  These events are open to ALL AGES and the material featured is MODERATED by Poet’s Haven staff.  No explicit language is allowed and content must fall within “PG-13″ restrictions.


Warning: Contains Language  These events are open to ALL AGES, but the material featured is UNMODERATED and may contain adult language and content.  Poets are asked to avoid anything explicitly “XXX” pornographic, but “R” rated content is perfectly welcome.  Parental advisory.


Adults Only  These events are held in locations with an age restriction, such as a bar.  These events are UNMODERATED and may contain adult language and content.  Poets are asked to avoid anything explicitly “XXX” pornographic, but “R” rated content is perfectly welcome.
