Willamette Writers on the River’s Quarterly Reading
December 21, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
It’s at the usual time and place:
Monday, December 21, 2015
6:30–8:30 PM (sign-up starts at 6:15)
First Presbyterian Church
114 SW 8th Street (enter Dennis Hall off the 9th Street parking lot behind the church)
Reading your work (be it poetry, prose, fiction or nonfiction) in front of others is an important aspect of the writing life. And at the WWotR Open Mic, anyone can participate, but you have to sign up. These events tend to fill up, so if you want to read, it’s a good idea to get there as soon after 6:15 PM as possible. The number of readers is limited. First to sign up is first to read. Each person gets 7 minutes. No graphic violence, sex, or hate speech. Please tell the audience if your piece is fiction or non-fiction, and if it is a part or whole.
These quarterly readings are free and open to everyone.
Remember, this is an opportunity to read your written work. It is not meant to be an interactive forum or teaching session. A few tips to help make your performance a success:
• Time yourself beforehand.
• Speak loudly.
And of course an audience is also needed. So if you don’t want to read, please come hear some talented writers present their work.
