“It’s a treat to be read to as adults,” says Dianne Hicks Morrow, PEI Poet Laureate. She invites the public to attend open mic readings at the Haviland Club, Charlottetown, the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m., starting October 8.
Island writers and readers are invited to share their writing, whatever the genre: poetry, fiction, memoir, etc. In addition to inviting seasoned writers, Morrow encourages new writers to read.
“I still remember how nervous I was the first time I read at an open mic. Before long it’s fun, and the response of the audience really helps your writing. The Haviland Club is a cozy setting, with a friendly audience, the perfect place to get started.”
Each gathering will feature a guest reader. Morrow encourages those who wish to be a featured reader to let her know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Admission is free or by donation. There will be a cash bar.
