Literary Open Mic has a new home!

Zero to 360, our long-running Open Mic series is back, but this year, with a change of venue.

Now held in the South Surrey Recreation and Arts Centre, words will ring out in the beautiful Turnbull Gallery.

Snacks and beverages will be available from the Sources concession stand in the Centre, with service shutting down at 7:30.

As in the past, sign-up for the Open Mic starts at 7 pm, with the readings beginning at 7:30.

Except for April, when it’s an all-poetry night (for National Poetry Month), all genres are welcome – just so long as the presentations stay within that magical ‘360 second’ mark (6 minutes). If the timer rings while you’re reading, it can be embarrassing, so do a bit of practice before you come.

All are welcome – and remember, you don’t need to read to attend. Audience members are appreciated, especially when they’re appreciative listeners.

Dates for this year’s Zero to 360 are, except for September, the second Thursday of every month, save for December, July and August, when the series takes a break. View all the dates here.
