Story & Verse: A Storytelling and Poetic Open Mic
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, to be announced soon, as broadly as they wish.
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
Free and open to the public!
