ABOUT:
Open Mic w/ coffee and treats

Pull out your berets and black clothing—it’s an open mic night! Don’t panic, however—you can choose to read something of your own (maybe something polished and revised from our May Mingle) OR read something from a book you adore, with a maximum of 300 words (2 – 3 minutes reading time). Participation is optional, but snapping your appreciation is mandatory. (Not really. That would be obnoxious.)

Bring your best speaking voice. We will bring coffee, decaf, and baked goods. Please RSVP if possible so we can plan timing and coffee amounts.

EXTRAS:
Filtered water provided. Attendees are welcome to bring snacks.
