Sunflower Club

Each month, I host a creative community event where we gather and share poetry, music, and spoken word with one another. Some come to listen, some come to share, and it’s always a beautiful night of connection, friendship, community, heart-openings, and release.

It’s a time where a lot of us are going through difficult things, and moments like these to connect and share in the softness and love of community feels magical. I have found that sharing my poetry has helped me find my voice and find strength in myself.

I am grateful to all the amazing beings who show up for themselves and each other.

It’s amazing to watch friends, new and old, have the courage to share, finding the power in their voice, their story, and that’s what this night is all about.

How It Started

Funnily enough, I am not one for center stage. However, as I was writing my way through the trauma and difficult moments of my life, I would read my poems aloud to my husband or myself, and I felt a whole other level of healing take place.

As I read my words, just as I felt them, I was acknowledging them, feeling them, and releasing them through this poetic channel. Some of this trauma I carried for many, many years, and it was finally finding its way out through writing poetry and sharing it aloud.

I knew then that I wanted to share it with a wider audience, wondering if it would bring another level of healing or if it would inspire others along their path. I googled and googled open mic nights in my area, but I couldn’t find anything that matched the vibe.

Surrounded by a lot of encouragement from sweet friends and the guidance of James McCrae who was hosting exactly what I wanted to be a part of… (but all the way in Austin), I started the Sunflower Club, an open mic night in Stuart, FL.

Our venue is Hani Honey Company, a cute local honey store and cafe, and the owners were more than happy to host our open mic night. It’s been a safe, loving space to host our creative community gathering.

We are coming up on a year of beautiful Sunflower Club nights. If you are looking for an open mic night in Stuart, FL to express your own creativity, be sure to check us out.
