Storytelling & Prose Open Mic with Gale Massey

Hosted by Wordier Than Thou

Join us for our first Storytelling & Prose open mic live and in person in more than a year. Bring your finest prose or a true story to share. In addition to open mic readers, Gale Massey, who released her collection of short stories, Rising and Other Stories, in April, will be our guest author.

Her work has appeared in Salon, Writer’s Digest, Lambda Literary, CutBank, CrimeReads, Sabal, the Tampa Bay Times, Saw Palm, and Tampa Bay Noir. Gale was a Tennessee Williams Scholar at the Sewanee Writers Conference, a fellow at Writers in Paradise, and has served as a panel judge for the Lamdba Literary Awards. She has been nominated for a Pushcart prize in both fiction and nonfiction.
