The OPEN MIC – by The Reader Berlin – is kicking off!
There’s no better practice for your writing than reading it out loud—and what better place to do it than at our new event: The OPEN MIC.
A very short story, a few poems, a micro-memoir or essay, or an excerpt from something longer – we want to hear it!
Come by Das Gift on Friday, February 10 and sign up for a 5-minute slot. No feedback or critique – just an opportunity to share your work and get inspired by your fellow writers.
And if you don’t have anything to read this time around — just come by for a drink and hang out/catch up with your The Reader classmates.
This edition of The OPEN MIC will be hosted by our very own WRITER MIKE: fiction tutor, writer and musician Michael Jeffery Lee!
