Featured Presentation: Open Microphone (and Holiday Party)

Speaker: You!

Once a year, our Coastal Dunes branch has an open microphone day when our attendees can read from their work.  This year, we are having our Open Microphone on Saturday, December 2nd, to coincide with our Holiday Celebration. We'll have a selection of sweet and savory holiday treats to enjoy, so come and join the party!

It’s a lot of fun to meet our local writers and hear what we have written and are working on. Each speaker will have up to 5 minutes to read his or her prose, poetry, or essays. You can do readings from your fiction or nonfiction, published or work-in-progress.  It’s also a great opportunity to hone your author speaking skills and to promote your work. Come share your work with us, and be inspired by your fellow authors and writers!
