The National Writers Union Tucson- May 19, 2014 Open Mic

The National Writers Union Tucson- May 19, 2014 Open Mic

The National Writers Union will be hosting an open mic on Monday, May 19, starting at 6:15 or shortly thereafter. The open mic is for spoken word only but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!

The event will be held in our new location, the Maker House at 283 N. Stone Ave., two blocks north of the downtown branch of the Pima County Public Library. There is free parking after 6 p.m. in the Franklin lot, right across the street from Maker House, as well as some parking along Stone Avenue itself (remember, metered parking is also free in the evenings). Anybody with mobility issues should use the main, East side building entrance off of Stone. For a map of both the location and the available parking, go to the bottom of the Maker House’s homepage at http://www.makerhouse.org. Also please note that the Maker House does not serve meals, but does offer a full range of drinks, including wine and beer. Since there will be no meal, we will be meeting at 6 p.m. instead of 5:30 as we did at Fronimo’s.
