Here’s how it works:
- Your reading must be from a completed work of genre fiction (nothing partially finished). It may be from a novel, short story, or novella. There are no restrictions on the genre, but please keep the excerpt you are reading PG rated for sex and violence.
- Each reading will last approximately 2 - 5 minutes, depending on the number of volunteers. (If you go over, you may be whisked away by a giant hook, Bugs-Bunny style.)
- Please take a few seconds at the beginning of your reading to show us the cover of your book, and whether it’s published and available.
- There will be 8 – 10 spots open for writers.
- The sessions will NOT be scheduled in advance. Participants must arrive before 7:00 pm and place their name in a draw box. Then 8 – 10 names will be randomly drawn, and readings will take place toward the end of the evening.
- Feel free to bring promotional material to share on our “Mingling Table”.
- $5 charge at the door to cover the cost of the room.
- We’ll be using a microphone (but it’s a friendly one).
