SEQUIM –– You and I are the featured writers, but we’ve got to get this done quick.
Writers on the Spit are going open mic for this month’s Fourth Friday Reading at the Rainshadow Coffee Bar, 157 W. Cedar St., at 6 p.m. today.
The rules are simple. Make a poem or short story that can be read in less than five minutes.
The group has thrown out three prompts for those looking for jumping-off points: “Next to nothing,” “the biggest surprise” and “time out!”
Writers may also freestyle if the prompts don’t provide inspiration, organizer Ruth Marcus said.
Admission is free.
