June Edition: Open Mic Night

As summer draws closer and the weather gets nicer we find ourselves shedding coats.  In losing these layers we also lose the valuable pocket storage our outerwear provides.  Whether it is the inside breast pocket of a sport jacket or the side pockets of a winter jacket.  All of a sudden, you have no place to conveniently keep your spare change.  And therein lies the inspiration for our theme this month.

For the June 21, 2018 edition of our get together, the theme is Happiness.  We will be looking forward to hearing your stories, songs, poems, stand up comedy, and other  creative enterprises in which people are deliriously happy a loved one is coming home, going to their happy place which also happens to be an actual  magical happy place filled with sunshine and rainbows, or happy their ridiculously complicated revenge scheme worked out exactly as planned.  This is not an inclusive list, we wanted to give you a few examples to get you started on your way!

 

The Master of Ceremonies for the Evening

This month the event will be hosted by a member of our community.  If you are interested in hosting our open mic night email us at Write Now or at Creative Cafe, or come and see us during the break, we are very nice people, I promise.

The Details

We meet in the basement of Cafe Korb.  To cover the cost of the venue, as this is a collective effort, we ask you to contribute €5 to €10.  Performances start around 19:00, and run for approximately two and a half hours.  However, if you are interested in performing 18:45 is when sign up starts.

Creative endeavours featuring the theme Happiness will be given preference in the performance order.

As this is a joint endeavour between Creative Cafe and Write Now Vienna we have a number of performers.  We ask that you stick to these rough time guidelines so many people get a chance to participate.

  • poetry (max 5 minutes reading time)
  • short story (max 2000 words)
  • novel excerpt (max 1500 words)
  • song (max 5 minutes)
  • stand-up comedy (max 5 minutes)

We will be publishing the best selections from the evening right here on our blog.  Keep checking back for the latest literary endeavours and to learn about new authors on the scene.

Bring your stories, songs, comedic acts, novel excerpts, poetry, and whatever else can be written on paper and join us for a fun filled and supportive evening.  We hope to see you there.
