Open Mic Night
Posted: Jan 24, 2020
The first Tuesday of every month My Favorite Books holds an Open Mic Night at 7pm. Whether you’re a poet, storyteller, writer, songwriter, or musician, we encourage you to come share your work at our Open Mic!
Sign up on arrival for a ten-minute spot to share your original poetry, prose, or story—you can even bring a selection from your favorite poet/author! So, come on over—share your words, meet local artists, and make some new friends!
Each month we feature a different local artist, who gets the spotlight at the beginning of the night. Linda Marie is our host; she holds an MFA in painting with a minor in Women’s Studies from the University of South Florida, and a BFA from the University of Hawaii. She is a symbolist painter, writer, poet, and playwright. Before moving to Tallahassee, she was the host of Austin Poetry Society’s monthly poetry venue for 6 years. She is enjoying meeting and introducing many local poets, storytellers, as well as writers here in Tally!
