This month, an open mic will start the evening, co-curated and co-hosted by Pamela K. Santos. The open mic will be followed by the three featured performers.

Open Mic Details:
Three(3) minutes (390 words) maximum per reader (this is a hard stop) to answer THIS prompt from the desk of the Might Pamela K. Santos, co-curator/co-host:

“Often we are answering a question in a prompt or something. What if we have to come up with a question first?

I wonder: what question are you trying to answer right now (in your writing, in your life, in fiction, in the world)? Like, if a tarot card reader asked you to place a question strongly in your mind right now, what is that burning question you want to answer for yourself?”

The open mic will last for about twenty-one minutes (7 readers, 3 minutes each). Sign up at the door to read – names will be pulled from the “hat/jar/box” at random.
