Poet Hala Alyan features @ Mike Geffner Presents The Inspired Word, Wednesday, May 23, 2012, 116 MacDougal Street Bar/Lounge, Manhattan, New York City. Hosted by Gemineye.

Hala Alyan is a doctoral student, a psychologist-in-training, and a poet. She writes relentlessly and has been featured at various venues throughout the New York City poetry scene, including the Nightingale Lounge, Cornelia Cafe's Son of Pony and the Bowery Poetry Club. She is currently working on her first full-length manuscript, due to come out in the following year by Three Rooms Press. As an Arab-American, Hala has lived all over the world, spanning from Oklahoma to Beirut. Her poetry is deeply influenced by these distinct geographic spaces, as well as the intimacy of imagination. Mythical figures, literary characters, and inanimate objects alike are reworked and transformed in her work.

The Inspired Word is one of the country's hottest open mic spoken word poetry/performance series. Produced by longtime journalist and former Village Voice columnist Mike Geffner and hosted by HBO Def Poetry star Gemineye, NYC spoken word legend Nathan P., poet Aimee Herman, and actor/comedian Erica Bradshaw, it happens every week in downtown Manhattan, New York City.
