Open Reading at The Readery


Saturday, 21 July
19:00 - 20.00

The Open Reading is for anyone, even for you.

The writing prompt for this open reading is:


We know this is vague; that's intentional.
Our aim is to leave plenty of room for you and your creative expression.

There is no right or wrong way to write about this topic.

You can write a short story.

You can write a poem.

You can write non-fiction.

You can write (and sing) a song.
You can write something personal.  Or not.

Other topics are also welcome; 
the prompt is there to get you started if you need an idea.

It's up to you.

Reading/presenting time per writer: five minutes
(Prose writers, shoot for 500 to 700 words.)

Write it, then come to the Readery and share it.
We can't wait to hear what you come up with.

You do not need to register for this event.

Listeners also welcome.

Note: There will be no open reading in August (because of summer holidays) nor in September.   But please mark your calendar now for Saturday, September 29, when we’ll host our annual 100,000 Poets for Change event.  More details coming soon!  Our monthly open readings will resume in October.
