It’s that time again: express yourself at our quarterly Open Mic Night! Bring 2 pieces or five minutes’ worth of work to share. Ages 12 through adult are welcome to read poetry aloud, enjoy light refreshments, listen and be inspired. No small children, please. Sign in between 5:30-6:30 to be guaranteed your turn at the mic.
Smash journals are part scrapbook, part journal. Everything you need will be provided, along with ideas on what to write and examples of how others have creatively expressed themselves with paint, markers, magazine pictures, stickers & duct tape. This project is for boys and girls, ages 12-19!
