David Joe Miller’s Spoken Word OPEN MIC will end it’s successful 2017 season on Thursday November 30th, 7pm at McKinney Arts Center in downtown Jonesborough, TN.
Spoken Word OPEN MIC provides a platform for storytellers and poets to share their work with a supportive and enthusiastic audience in the Storytelling Capital of the World. Participants can sign up at 6:30pm for a ten minute time slot. There is no theme, no competition and no censorship. The only rule is to keep your stage time to ten minute or less.
OPEN MIC offers a wonderful opportunity for the poet or storyteller to showcase their work, try out new material or just practice the craft of spoken word.
Doors open at 6:30pm at the McKinney Arts Center, 103 Franklin Avenue right off of East Main Street in Jonesborough. The show begins at 7pm and there is normally time for ten participants. The event is free and sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. David Joe Miller of Asheville, NC.
