It hasn't been easy for many people to create these last several months. So, we thought it might inspire people to write if our next Writer's Night had a theme to prompt your imagination! Since it's the start of October, it obviously has to be Halloween-themed, and "haunted" opens up so many possibilities for stories. Perhaps it's an ex who lingers in your dreams like a ghost in an old house, or your greatest fear that you can't shake. This can be a poem, short story, maybe even a one-person play, whatever you feel!
Of course, feel free to share work that does not go along with the theme!
NOTE: Lion's Mouth Bookstore is OPEN for in-person browsing but we're keeping Writer's Night virtual to keep each other healthy!
ABOUT WRITER'S NIGHT:
There's open mic nights for musicians and slam events for spoken word and poetry, but this event opens the floor for all writers to share some work you've done, words from others you love or tell a story you've had on your mind. SHARING IS NOT REQUIRED -- we love for people to simply come and listen. Respect is the only requirement!
Each reader will get about 10 minutes to share their work. All types of writing and all skill levels are welcome.
The goal is for writers and creators to inspire one another and find a community of possible editors, writing encouragers and friends. There’s no judging or critiquing, no prizes or high stakes. In this time, community is more important than ever.
The event is hosted by Sammy Gibbons, a reporter for the Green Bay Press-Gazette and fiction writer.
