Literary Open Mic

Hosted by Wordier Than Thou

Bring your finest prose or a true story to share at this monthly literary open mic event hosted by Wordier Than Thou.
In addition to open mic readers, the night will begin with a reading from special guest author Brian Petkash.
Brian Petkash grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, a focal point of much of his writing (and much of his sports heartache).
A former high school literature and creative writing teacher, he lives in Tampa with his partner Celeste and works as a marketing professional in both the game and comic book industries.
He holds an MFA in Creative Writing from University of Tampa. His work has appeared in El Portal, Bridge Eight Literary Magazine, Southword, and Midwestern Gothic.
Mistakes by the Lake, his collection of stories, was published by Madville Publishing.
