Open Mic on Zoom September 13, 2023

September 13 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm PDT

Sign up to read a five-minute segment from something you’ve written. It can be a work-in-progress, something already published, or that sheaf of poems you hid under the bed last year. Share it with writers and readers at our 90-minute Read Fest!

Not ready to read your work to a crowd? That’s okay, we need an audience, too. Come and hear what others have to say.

When you register, let us know if you want to be a reader. The first seven people to sign-up will be given a slot to read for five minutes.

Join us for Open Mic Night!

If we have more than seven requests to read, we’ll start the list for the next event.

We’ll have time for discussion, but please remember, this is not a critique session! Talk about what you liked, not what the author can do better.

This event is open to the public. Bring your friends!
