Open Mic Night: Travelling

The sun is finally shining, the air is warm, and the trees are blooming.  And we are all thinking about where we will take our summer holidays.  We have decided to follow the trend and make this month’s open mic about travelling in all of its forms.  

For the April 19, 2018 edition of our get together, the theme is Travelling.  We will be looking forward to hearing your stories, songs, poems, stand up comedy, and other  creative enterprises in which people take a vacation, walk through their neighbourhood, visit a new planet, or go on an epic journey to deliver an esoteric personal item to a fairy.  This is not an inclusive list, we wanted to give you a few examples to get you started on your way!

This month will be hosted by a community member.  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 Travelling 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.
