Open Mic Session
The Open Mic session is an opportunity for participants to read for 3 minutes from their own work.
This is not a pitch session, but an opportunity to share what you are working on. Choose a selection that you feel is entertaining and representative of your writing.
You sign up for the Open Mic when you arrive at the conference. Readings will take place in the order on the sign-up sheet.
Note that you only have three minutes in total for setting up the piece and reading it, so prepare accordingly. There will be a timer and you will be warned when your time is nearly up. If you are still speaking when your time is up, you will be cut off!
NB: Only those who did not participate in the Friday night Ready! Set! Pitch! session may participate.
