Story & Verse: A Storytelling and Poetic Open Mic – “The Way We Were”- Free & open to the public!
Enjoy an evening of community-created entertainment in the form of storytelling and poetic open mic. All are welcome to tell a well-prepared story or perform their poetry. Each month, we’ll be inviting inspiration from a well-known song title. Artists are invited to interpret the theme as broadly as they wish. Performers should bring their own work, inspired by this month’s theme: The Way We Were.
The evening will include 45 minutes of stories and 45 minutes of poetry with a brief intermission.
Stories begin: 7:30pm
- Performers will be randomly selected from names in a ‘hat’.
- Storytellers should prepare a 5-minute story on the theme, true and about the teller. Storytellers should follow “The Moth” guidelines
- Poets should perform their own poetry, up to 5 minutes in length, related to the theme.
- Performers will be selected at random, so it’s possible that not everyone will get to perform.
