checkingthemic grew out of a love for the spoken word and a desire to share it. Let this be the place you go to get your dose of all things spoken word and poetry.

Do you remember your first time? You know, the first time you were in front of that microphone? Was it everyone’s eyes looking at you that made your stomach flip like an olympic gymnast (the gold medal kind) and your heart skip a beat (the way it did the first time you fell in love – you know, in junior high)? Probably not. If you’re like me, it was the fact that their ears were listening that had you all excited about speaking that first word.

Maybe you’ve never been on the mic. Do you remember your first time? The first time those words fell out of someone’s mouth and punched you in the gut, caressed your soul, made your eardrum vibrate so that you could feel it in your entire being?

Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. Come check the mic with me.
