Open Mic will follow.
Every month we will spotlight a featured author and invite guests to participate in the Open Mic portion afterward.
Past featured authors’ works have included poetry, novels, memoir, and short fiction. Authors have included local talent and writers from across the southeast. Featured presenters share their work for roughly 20 minutes apiece.
Stick around after the Featured Readers for the Open Mic portion of the afternoon. Open Mic participants are asked to keep their selection under 5 minutes to allow time for all interested to participate.
We hope to see you at our next event!
