Open Mic Reading night

My writing group, Clane Writers, is hosting an Open Mic reading night, in Newbridge (Co Kildare) on Wednesday 20th April.

Are you ready to unleash those writings on an unsuspecting public?

An open mic night is an opportunity to perform (read)your work before a live audience.

Previous nights have been a great success, with writers from all over Leinster converging on Johnsons, The Liffey Arms, Newbridge to read a variety of material from flash fiction, memoir, short stories,novel extracts, poetry, travel pieces, personal reflections and more.

One good reason to come along is the practice you will get for when you LAUNCH that NOVEL or collection of SHORT STORIES or POETRY that's bubbling inside you. You will have to read in public now is your chance.

Speaking of launching a novel leads me neatly to some great news for our writer's group. Clane writers are proud to announce that one of our members, Debbie Thomas, will be reading from her newly published, fabulously funny, deadly original, children's novel "Dead Hairy" on Wednesday night.

As a member of Clane writers, I have so enjoyed Debbie's thoroughly entertaining readings of "Dead Hairy" at our meetings. Particularly special is that I've listened to "Dead Hairy" in its fledgling form, knowing that it was brilliant and HAD to be published and now have seen the book in the flesh and on the shelf. An inspiring journey.

Would love to see you there!">

Hi nutschell
What has helped me is going along first to listen. Sometimes when you see lots of others reading, you are convinced you can do it!
Thanks for dropping by.
