Guild Meeting Offers Chance to Read at Open Mike
July 5, 2012
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Members of the Knoxville Writers’ Guild will have an opportunity to read their work at the Guild’s annual open mike night on Thursday, July 5. The event, which will be open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. at the Laurel Theater, at the corner of Laurel Avenue and 16th Street in Fort Sanders. A $2 donation is requested at the door. The building is handicapped accessible. Additional parking is available at Redeemer Church of Knoxville, 1642 Highland Ave. “Our open mike night is a great way for members to share their work,” Terry Shaw, KWG board president, said. “It showcases the wide variety of talent that we have in the Guild and is always a hit. I welcome everyone to participate in this fun event.” To ensure as many people as possible have the chance to read, there are a few simple guidelines to follow: 1) You must be a current member of the Knoxville Writers’ Guild. You can join or renew your membership before the readings begin. There will be a sign-up sheet at the door for those taking part. Writers sign up on a first come, first serve basis. 2) What you read should be your own work or that of another KWG member. If it will be the work of another KWG member, you are required to have permission to read his/her work. 3) Your reading time will be three or four minutes maximum, depending on the number of people who sign up. It’s not necessary that your reading last the full amount of time allotted. For instance, if you have a one-minute poem and don’t have anything else you’d like to read, that would be fine. 4) What you read should be suitable for a general audience. In other words, please show courtesy to those attending. Think of approaching your reading as something to be shared and appreciated by one-and-all. Open mike night is one of the most popular KWG meetings of the year. Arrive early to sign up and ensure a great seat.
