Open Mic at Annapolis Chapter on Dec. 19

Share a sample from your latest work in progress, or read from your favorite published work, at the Annapolis Chapter’s open mic session on Wednesday, December 19 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 205 of Maryland Hall! Join MWA members who live and write in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County for this first-come, first-read event. Seasonal readings are of course welcome, but not required.

Come early — slots are limited! There will be a sign-up sheet and we’ll go down the list until we run out of time (or readers, whichever comes first). Please be prepared to read for about ten minutes — that’s about four or five short poems, a couple of long poems, a short-short story, or a scene from a longer work. We want to make sure that everyone who signs up has time to read.

Tell your friends and family. The meeting is open to the public and free to MWA members and first-time guests. All others may pay $5.00. Annual dues to MWA are only $40.00 and include great benefits and free admission to monthly meetings at any chapter. Annapolis Chapter meetings are ever third Wednesday of every month at Maryland Hall. For more information visit:

Open mics are a great opportunity for writers to practice reading their work in front of an audience, which is an important skill for every writer to develop. MWA open mics traditionally offer a friendly, relaxed, and encouraging atmosphere that will put even the most nervous reader at ease.
