The first 2017 Redwood Writers Open Mic will be held Saturday, January 28 at Gaia’s Garden restaurant, 1899 N. Mendocino Ave. in Santa Rosa, CA. Come on out and join us from 2 to 4 p.m. for an afternoon of literary delight. This monthly event features members of Redwood Writers http://redwoodwriters.org/ and is also open to other writers or poets. Anyone who enjoys listening to stories and poems is also invited to attend. These open mics are held on the 4th Saturday of each month.
We start off 2017 with an adventurous travel writer, Inga Aksamit, and a gifted story teller and author Jan Ögren. After the two Featured Readers entertain us we will host a one hour Open Mic session for any other authors and poets who’d like to share their work aloud for up to 5 minutes. You may sign up in person that day at Gaia’s Garden starting at 1 p.m. if you wish to read aloud. A suggested purchase of $5 or more in food or beverage will help support the restaurant.
