Writing in the Time of Covid - A Second Night of Readings and Open Mic

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at 7:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

A Virtual Event: Works from the Lake Writers and an "Open Mic."

Arts on the Lake and the Lake Writers invite you join in the virtual event, Writing in the Time of Covid. Presented on the Zoom platform the members of the writers’ group will read both works of their own and of others they have chosen. In addition we invite our members and others to share the works they have written or wish to read. The second half of the evening will be devoted to those who join us.

Please use this Google Forms submission sheet to sign up to read during the evening. Depending on the number of requests we hope to have everybody get a chance to share their work.

A discussion of the works will follow the presentation.

The Zoom Link for this evening is here.
