Takin The Mic @ The Irish Writers Centre

April 25, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Connor McDonough-Flynn (@ConMcFlynn) #TakingTheStage at Takin The Mic at the Irish Writers Centre () on the 25th of April 2014. Doors 19:00. BYOB.

Calling all writers, poets, spoken-word artists, musicians and songwriters: come join us for our open mic night on Friday 25 April. Guest MC on the night is Dimitra Xidous, whose debut collection of poetry Keeping Bees has just been released.

Admission is free and doors are at 7.00 pm. Arrive a few minutes ahead of time if you want to book your slot or you can let us know here. Tell your friends and get RSVP-ing!

Here are a few reasons why you should come:

*For non writers dropping by the Irish Writers Centre for a chat and to listen is an engaging and enjoyable to hang out and hear very different styles of writing and poetry in various stages of completion.
*It’s fun. Open mics are social events. It is important to meet fellow writers and get out of your study!
*The purpose of art is for it to express itself. Reading your work out is a powerful statement in and of itself.
*It helps the writing process: Reading your work out to your peers is a fast powerful editing tool for your work. It shows what works and what needs work.
