SIGN-UP OR COME TO LISTEN
To The Next OPEN READINGS: THURSDAY, DEC. 1 AT 7:00 PM.
Completing our third year, the Open Readings event is a platform for sharing portions of our work from all genres, including poetry, and receiving immediate feedback. Come and listen to what our members have written.
Meeting ID: 862 5297 4943
If you wish to read your material, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for the Open Readings.
Typically, with time for about six writers, the 7:00 to 8:30 pm event has provided not only casual writer-to-writer interaction, but insight and entertainment for all participants. Members gain insight about the work of other members, as well as their writing inspirations and goals.
The pieces read are expected to be self-contained, such as a chapter or a little story. However, those are not limitations. A vivid description of a character, event, scene, or essay is also welcome. We have not yet had a screenplay piece. The Moderator, John Patterson, requests each author submit a brief introduction of the author and/or the piece to be read. The reading time limitation runs about 6-8 minutes. All readers are encouraged to practice reading their piece out loud (which is slower-takes more time-than reading to yourself).
Writers who’ve signed up will receive additional information from John about two weeks prior to the event. Those who come to listen are reminded to consider the reader’s needs: thus no use of chats; big physical movements; eating; talking; etc. during the actual readings. John will open the event at 6:30 pm for visiting. Please plan to arrive before 7:00 pm. If you link in during a reading, the moderator may wait until the end of the reading to admit you.
