Host Dianne Hicks Morrow, PEI poet laureate, invites readers and listeners to the 4th Open Mic event at the Haviland Club, 7 – 9 p.m. Tuesday, January 14. Readers can sign up at 7 p.m. to read either poetry or prose, anywhere from three to seven minutes.

The featured reader that night will be Beth E. Janzen. Beth is a poet, fiction writer, and teacher. Her poetry publications include Night Vanishes_ (Saturday Morning Chapbooks, 2004) and The Enchanted House (Acorn Press, 2006). “Watermelon”, which appeared in Riptides: New Island Fiction (Acorn Press, 2012), is part of a manuscript of short fiction, currently in progress. Beth’s fascination with mythic themes is apparent in her work, which often examines the intricacies of relationships.

For more than 10 years, Beth has enjoyed facilitating writing classes and acting as a mentor for writers at all stages of their journeys.

Once again, the Open Mic will feature a few songs from a singer-songwriter, in this case the duo of Sundi and Daniel. Sundi and Daniel have been in three different bands together in South Korea and the Czech Republic before moving to PEI. They will be playing a few acoustic and very different versions of original songs from those bands.

Admission is free or by donation.
