Good news! Greater Lansing has a new open mic for written and spoken-word that starts tonight at Gone Wired Cafe, 2021 E. Grand River Ave., Lansing. Sign-up begins at 7:45pm with the open mic at 8:00pm. The event is free and open to the public. And, Wordsmiths, a writing circle is held from 6:30-7:30pm before the open mic.
The Writing Room began last year as a writing circle at the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing. It’s always been an open circle — for all writers and genres. We meet twice a month, the first hour with self-directed writing followed by an hour of exchange about our words.
The Writing Room Open Mic is new this season, and takes place on 2nd Mondays through 2011 — October 10, November 14, and December 12 — at Gone Wired Cafe. The Writing Room also meets 4th Mondays on October 24 and November 28, from 6:30-8:30pm at the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing, 1712 E. Grand River Ave., Lansing.
