Newport & Corvallis: June Open Mic

June 22, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Willamette Writers on the River Chapter Logo

Join us with the Coast and Willamette Writers on the River

Join us for our June Open Mic. Does the audience sigh? Do they gasp? Do they laugh outright? Does the page read smoothly for you? In other words, does your writing bring the audience into your experience successfully? Read for applause and explore the effectiveness of your creation. Join us online June 22, 2020, from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM.

Go to the link below to join us online. You will find the co-chairs and host on screen. Sign-in to be counted as a participant by clicking on the chat bubble at the bottom of the screen. (Drag your cursor down and some icons will appear. If you don’t see “Chat” at the bottom of your window, click the three dots to find it.) Enter your name in the bottom of the chat box to the right of the video. If you want to read, type READER into the chat box followed by your name in all caps. For example, READER NAN C BALLARD. Sign-ups will be cut off at 6:45. You can also use the Chat to say hi and visit since you will be muted.

We will make a list of those signed up to read, assign each reader a number, and use a random number generator to determine the order people will read in. Once readings begin, we will continue for 90 minutes which should allow for 15 – 20 readers. Time is limited so not everyone may get to read. We will hold each reader to five minutes including any opening remarks to allow as many to read as possible.

After the readings, Willamette Writers members are asked to stay online to vote for the Board of Directors.” Our host and Executive Director, Kate Ristau, will be directing this important activity.

Not sure if your membership is current? Go to: https://willamettewriters.org/login/?action=forgot_password  This link will take you to a page where you enter your email as if you want a new password. If you are current, you will be sent an email (which you can ignore). If not, you are not current and will need to renew your membership.
