Attending the monthly meetings is a great way to become part of our writer’s community. Every third Thursday of the month we gather at the Cafe Korb (downstairs) to socialize, meet new and old friends, share tips about writing and publishing, and if you feel inspired you can partake in the Open Mic hour. For one hour every meeting we will open the stage (don’t be intimidated, it’s just a tiny stage, barely off the ground!) to you. We believe that sharing your work, whether it be a poem, a chapter, a short story, a scene, or non-fiction, is an important part of the journey of being a writer. Sharing stories is a way of communicating, a way to bring people together, a way to entertain and inform. Or sometimes it’s just a way of seeing whether your writing has legs and is ready to stand on its own out there in the world. But of course there is no pressure to participate in the Open Mic. You are more than welcome to come and listen! We promote an atmosphere that is friendly, supportive, and constructive. Really, we just get together, have a drink and talk about writing!

We ask that you make a small donation (€5-10) to cover the cost of the space.

Open Mic Guidelines:

Please try to keep your piece under 2000 words.

Be respectful when others read – share your opinion of the piece only if the writer requests feedback

If you would like to participate, please send a short email to office.writenow@gmail.com to let us know.
