Gainesville: Storytelling & Prose Open Mic

  • First Magnitude Brewing 1220 Southeast Veitch Street Gainesville, FL, 32601 United States (map)

We're excited to bring our unique open mic to Gainesville! 

Our 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 area wordsmiths.

Readings will begin around 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 readers are TBA.

Writers: please remember this is a family-friendly venue and children might be in the audience.

Suggested $5 donation at the door.
