Starting at 6 p.m. and running as long as your favorite must-see-TV episode, you’ll see how much fun writing can be—because you’ll be doing it, and we’ll all be doing it, too.
We give you a “prompt,” a little spark to light your flame to create a story. We’ll all knock out a story, about that same thing, kind of like those painters you see with their easels at Falls Park, rendering their own versions of what we all see. Then, just before the Open Mic-ers take the stage, we’ll hear your version of that story—almost like being in that Hollywood room where writers create your favorite TV series.

Congratulations to the 2017 Emrys Chapbook Winner Mary B. Moore whose book, Amanda & The Man Soul is now available. Order your copy now!
Read the first poem in Amanda and the Man Soul and then keep on reading, as I did, straight through to the final poem. This is one of those books that can’t be put down, that overwhelms us with the mystery of what it means to be human and alive in a body, to be in possession of a soul, or maybe twin souls. We are, as Mary Moore writes of Van Gogh’s “Irises”, “The terrors his brush disclosed / bad gods among the beauties.” —Dorianne Laux
