Open mic

While our featured readers tend to be established, published writers, each evening also provides two or three open mic opportunities where other emerging and established writers are able to read.

Anyone attending is welcome to read or perform (if you are a musician) in our open mic sessions. If you are a writer or musician who would like to perform in the open mic session, we ask that you listen in to at least one session to get the flavour of the evening and join in on your next visit. To participate, open mic readers should sign up with the evening’s curator to allow him/her to line up readers and manage the evening efficiently. You may also contact series curators Gavin or Mayank.

The ambience at our readings is intimate, extremely informal and very supportive. Readers are given 4 minutes in total, including a brief introduction to themselves and their work. They may read any form of creative writing (fiction/poetry/drama/screenplay) – or a work of reportage or creative non-fiction. 

There are detailed open mic guidelines posted in our FB group.

Open mic readers who have published works they would like to offer for sale are free to mention it on finishing their readings.
