Mud season can be a boon to our writing, a quiet time to tune our voices word by word, line by line (what else are we going to do?). But come March, if your pen feels a bit stir crazy and your words are dying to get off the screen or page, out on the town and onto the stage…then please join us on Monday, March 12th when the BWW teams up with the Lamp Shop Lit Club for its next thrilling open mic event. Open to all genres, whether read, recited, sung or mashed up with siracha on the side…we invite folks on stage to do their thing—the only restriction, we ask each performer to please limit mic time to 5 minutes or less. If November’s packed reading was a sign, we’re in for another eclectic and electric ride in March.
In the spirit of fairness, we’ll be holding a random lottery for sign ups for this open mic. To enter the lottery, simply leave a comment below by Friday, February 23 letting us know you’d like a spot. We’ll confirm the line-up by Monday, February 26. Preference will be given to those who didn’t get a spot in the last open mic. If you don’t get a spot in the BWW portion of this event, don’t worry! Feel free to come by and sign up for the Lamp Shop’s continued open mic to follow, with a first-come, first-served sign up system. And keep your eye out for the next BWW open mic coming this summer.
This event is funded in part by a grant from the Burlington City Arts Community Fund.
