The event, produced by Writers on the Spit, consists of five-minute open mic readings that showcase diverse writing talent: poetry, short-short stories and memoir or novel excerpts, according to a news release.
The event is open to amateurs and professionals.
Published writers are welcome to bring their books and sell before and after the event.
Writers’ names are drawn randomly for reading position.
Five-minute readings are timed, so participants are encouraged to rehearse in advance to avoid the dreaded gong.
