Writer's Night: April Edition
Thursday April 22, 2021 | 6:00PM - 8:00PM
NOTE: Lion's Mouth Bookstore is OPEN for in-person browsing but gatherings are still not advised due to COVID-19 so we're keeping Writer's Night virtual for the time being! The link will be available on Facebook on the night of the event.
ABOUT WRITER'S NIGHT: There's open mic nights for musicians and slam events for spoken word and poetry, but this event opens the floor for all writers to share some work you've done, words from others you love or tell a story you've had on your mind. SHARING IS NOT REQUIRED -- we love for people to simply come and listen. Respect is the only requirement! Each reader will get about 10 minutes to share their work. All types of writing and all skill levels are welcome.
The goal is for writers and creators to inspire one another and find a community of possible editors, writing encouragers and friends. There’s no judging or critiquing, no prizes or high stakes. In this time, community is more important than ever.
The event is hosted by Sammy Gibbons, a reporter for the USA TODAY Network Atlantic group and fiction writer.
