Open Mic Rules and Advice:
Arrive early to snag one of 10 open mic slots by signing up at the door.
Stick to 6 minutes. You will be timed and you'll receive a 5-minute warning. Practice and time yourself at home. We want to keep things moving and give all 10 open mic wordsmiths equal time. Seems only fair to us!
Stick to your original writing.
Don't preface your writing. Have faith that it can stand on its own. As soon as you get on stage, your time starts.
Come prepared and knowing exactly which piece you'll present.
