For our Halloween open mic this Thursday, October 30th we are throwing a costume party type event. The theme is "We All Wear Masks". Although you may read/play anything that you like, participants are encouraged to "wear a mask" with their poems and lyrics by reading poems by a narrator that is not the poet/songwriter themselves. You can read first-person narratives from the point of view of Mickey Mouse, a Toaster, your favorite pet, James Bond, or any other character known or that you have made up. If you can dress up for it on Halloween (or even if you can't) you can read/play it. There will also be treats available and small door prizes for costumes/poetry/songs/or pure randomness. Come on out and share your work. If you are shy you can wear a real mask, as costumes are highly encouraged!
