PLU Open Mic

Needs a location

Paris Lit Up open mic (PLU)

Every Thursday in English (other languages too – when in Rome, speak French) at the historic home of French Slam poetry, Culture Rapide (103 Rue Julien Lacroix, 75020). If you would like to read, dance, sing or otherwise express yourself, sign up is open and free to all, starting at 20.00-ish. We go until we drop or run out of performers! In any language. Or no language at all. No limits, just respect.

Plus, each week featured performers from around the world are invited to strut their stuff before our rowdy but respectful audience. For this week's special guest, see: www.facebook.com/ParisLitUp

Not in Paris? Join us online at "PLU Live on Zoom"! Every Wednesday from 9pm CET. Just like an open mic, but we chat a bit too. Always the same link, hosts rotate: http://tiny.cc/PLUopenmic

Right Bank Writers Group

Right Bank Write Club

A new writers workshop brought to you by Paris Lit-Up

Bring your prose, poetry, or just your powers of critique to the top floor of

La Chope des Compagnons
86 Quai de l’Hôtel de Ville

Saturdays
17:00-19:00

5 euros with a free drink

  • If you want to read, come with at least five printed copies of your work, all genres welcome.
  • Each piece will be given 20 minutes, divided up into reading time and feedback. It’s up to the writer how to split this – keep in mind that 1000 words takes about 8 minutes read out loud.
