CCCC Open Mic

The Central Carolina Community College Continuing Education Creative Writing program invites the public to join writers of prose and poetry for its annual open mic night.

The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 23, at the Chatham Community Library, Mary Hayes Holmes Meeting Room, Chatham Campus, Pittsboro.

The event will have a Halloween theme. Feel free to dress as your favorite fictional character or literary luminary. Light refreshments will be served.

Although the reading is not required to be in theme, original poetry and prose honoring all things ghostly, ghastly, and Gothic; back-to-school and bountiful; unpredictable and pumpkin-spiced; chilly and changing; or fallen and flannel are welcome.

Notes to writers who plan to read:
• Sign in when you arrive.
• You’ll read in the order you signed in. (Note: if you want to read later in the evening, sign at the bottom of the page.)
• You’ll have six minutes, including any introductions, background information, and closing remarks you wish to make.
