Start the New Year by nurturing your creative side. Have you been jotting down parts of poems, beginning lines of a novel or short story? Perhaps you have dialogue from a play that could use some feedback. You’ve been meaning to develop your talent, and this is an opportunity to share your work.
The Denver Women’s Press Club invites members and non-members alike to Open Mic from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 12, at their historic clubhouse at 1325 Logan St. Free parking is available in the lot to the north.
Grab a free drink and a snack, then take the mic to read something rough, explore an idea or share a published piece. Feeling timid? Bring a friend or cheer on those who read. This is a friendly and supportive environment.
Drinks start to pour at 5 p.m. The mic opens at 5:15 and closes at 6:45. Sign up with Dianne Blomberg at the clubhouse from 5-5:15. Time yourself to 4 minutes, 45 seconds. You will be stopped at exactly 5 minutes. There is no advance list. First come, first served. Don’t be late. Spots fill quickly.
This is one New Year’s resolution you’ll be glad you kept. Connect with fellow writers and stoke that creative fire.
