See You Tonight at the 2nd Annual Words at WAM!

2013 February 27

Words at WAM 2013: An Open Mic
Wed, Feb 27, 2013
Free and open to the public

6:00–7:00 pm: Social Hour & Open Mic Sign-up
 (first come, first served): Social hour with refreshments, music entertainment, plus WAM exhibits Laylah Ali: The Greenheads Series and Our Treasures: Highlights from the Minnesota Museum of American Art.

7:00–8:00 pm: Open Mic begins, in order of the sign-up sheet. The open mic is open to all interested wordsmiths of any genre: fiction, poetry, nonfiction, spoken word, and all literary mischief welcome.*

8:00–8:30 pm: Featured Local Rockstar Readers: Spoken word artist, activist, and founder of TruArtSpeaks Tish Jones, and U of M student fiction writer Matthew Ullery.


The fine print: Each reader will have four minutes to read their work(s), with a 30-second grace period. Readers will be given warnings if they go over the time limit, and at 4 minutes, 30 seconds, will have trashy dimestore romance paperbacks thrown at them. Readers will go in order of the sign-up sheet. The open mic will end at 8:00 pm, regardless of how many people are left on the sign-up sheet, so get there early to ensure your reading slot! No props (costumes, music, etc) allowed.

See you there!


Psst: RSVP at the Facebook event here.
