Open Mic Night and the pre-Open Mic Night workshop

You are invited to R2's Open Mic Night!

On Friday, October 30 at 9 PM, bring poetry, short stories, creative nonfiction, flash fiction, short reflections, ghost tales, or anything creative you have written to Lovett Undergrounds to share with us. Refreshments (snacks, beer, etc.) will be provided.
Time limit: 20 minutes/piece, max!

If you're hesitant or embarrassed about reading your piece, we'll be hosting a reading tutorial on Tuesday, October 26 from 5 to 6 PM in Hanszen 201. Coert Voorhees, a visiting professor in creative fiction at Rice, will share his advice about reading your work. You can also practice reading your piece in advance with us and get some great feedback that way.

Have a wonderful fall break!

Dear readers, thank you to those of you who helped make the reading such a nice experience! Thank you to the speakers as well! We had a great turnout although we ran over by half an hour. We look forward to hearing from you hopefully at the Open Mic Night (Oct. 30th) as well.

If you have any feedback, feel free to let us know. We'd like to do another reading in the spring semester.

In the meantime, we'd like to know what you are reading this fall break and possibly beyond. Just leave a comment below.
