St. Petersburg: Storytelling & Prose Open Mic

  • The Studio@620 620 1st Ave S St Petersburg, FL, 33701 United States

This unique open mic focuses on storytelling and fiction -- no poetry or music. So come share your finest prose, or if you're just in the mood for listening, catch some tales from our area's wordsmiths.

Readings will begin around 7 p.m. Sign-up begins at 6:30 p.m.

A featured reader will kick off the night, followed by open mic slots. Open mic readers get 10 minutes and will be timed. We encourage all readers to stay to the end and support everyone who signs up to share their work.

This month's featured reader is Dr. David Edmonds.

Edmonds, who recently released Lily of Peru, is a former Marine, Peace Corps volunteer, senior Fulbright professor of economics, academic dean, and U.S. government official with long experience in Peru and other countries in Latin America. He’s the author, editor or ghostwriter of seven other books, including the award-winning Yankee Autumn in Acadiana: a Narrative of the Great Texas Overland Expedition Through Southwestern Louisiana October - December 1863.

He grew up in Louisiana and Mississippi, and studied at L.S.U., Notre Dame, Georgetown, George Washington and American University. He currently lives in Florida with his wife, Maria.
