RYW Open Mic

2:The Historic Byrd Theater is hosting Richmond Young Writers at TWO open mic readings coming up, and young writers of all ages are invited! It's a fantastic opportunity for writers to experience the thrill and joy of being heard, and in a historic setting to boot. As each reading slot is only a minute long, it's not a huge commitment. Just a chance to read a poem, an excerpt, a piece of flash fiction, a scene from a screenplay... whatever strikes them as good work.

3:Writers are welcome to attend one or both sessions; anyone wanting to read will be signed up on the spot in the lobby of the theater between 1:15 and 1:25. OPEN MIC!@ The Byrd Theater. Saturday, July 30th at 1:30 (readers should arrive by 1:15) Saturday, August 27th at 1:30 (readers should arrive by 1:15). FREE to all, writers, family, friends and fans!
