About the event
A Dark and Stormy Night… Darkwood House Gallery’s first (of what will hopefully be many) Story & Verse Open Mic Night showcasing regional storytellers, poets, and spoken word artists of all kinds!
Writers: You are cordially invited to perform original, written works!
Guests: Come and join our encouraging audience of eager listeners!
Join us in the main gallery Saturday, May 13th 7:30 pm to experience local writers reading their original works!
A donation of at least $10 per person, payable at the door, is encouraged and will be greatly appreciated! All procedes will go toward supporting the gallery and our artists.
+18 ADULTS ONLY
Light refreshments including popcorn will be served.
Since we are a dark art gallery, written works of a dark, ghostly, macabre, gothic or otherwise disturbing nature will be most welcome, but please don’t feel you must limit yourself to such themes! We want to make this an opportunity to showcase the unique voices of local writers in a welcoming, tolerant space. But no sermons or proselytizing!
- Prepare a story, poem, or spoken word piece from up to 5 to 7 minutes in length.
- Arrive by 7:15pm to add your name into the hat. The order of participants will be drawn at random. No previous experience or pre-registration necessary.
- No cost for performers!
