Open Mic Night

The Writing and Communication Center and Clamor Literary and Arts Journal are co-hosting an Open Mic and you are invited! It will be a space to practice performing your creative work among your peers. Read any work of your choosing: prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, or cross-genre. All students are welcome, whether you’re an experienced performer or new to the practice. Sign up for a 5 minute time slot by e-mailing or at the event. Refreshments will be provided!

If you would like to practice performing your work before the Open Mic, come join the WaCC on 4/29 and 5/6 for two special Red Couch Writers.
