WHWN Open Mic
Thursday August 2, 2012
6 William St. (edging College Ave)
Davis Square, Somerville, MA 02144
This is an all-gender open mic event for queer/genderqueer/transgender folks and their friends, partners, community, and allies.
Do you journal? Write poetry? Are you working on a novel or a memoir? Do you blog about the world, your world? Come share 5 minutes of your writing with us. You’ll find yourself warmly welcomed by a community of appreciative listeners and other awesome writer-readers. And that’s right, avid readers who want to have their heartstrings twanged, their imaginations piqued, and their funnybones tickled will not be disappointed.
We welcome the queer and queer-allied community to join us as we create and hold space for folks to read their own words.
A sign-up sheet will be available at the event for 5-minute reading slots. As this is still a new event, if you intend to read, you may want to bring a couple 5-minute pieces in case we have surplus reading slots.
Folks are encouraged to bring flyers for the community table.
There will be delicious baked goods for sale!
We ask that you help us make this a low-scent event by not wearing perfume/cologne or other scented products.
The $5-$20 sliding scale door donation will help fund WHWN’s pro bono work within the community. Since 2001, Write Here Write Now (www.writeherewritenow.org) has been dedicated to providing safe, supportive, and financially accessible services and spaces for LGBTQQIA people in the Boston (metro) and Western Massachusetts area and serves national and international communities through the use of the internet and other electronic and social media.
