Assembly Literary Open Mic at Vermillion

Join us to celebrate the new home to Assembly Literary Open Mic on first Wednesdays. Assembly welcomes literary works in progress. Emphasis on LITERARY. Emphasis on WORKS IN PROGRESS.

Join a community of writers and poets who aspire to strengthen their skills. This is not your chance to boast in front of a captive audience. This is not the place to perform polished works.

Please bring fresh meat. Do not bring previously published works to read. No stand-up comedy. No musical arts. No slam poetry. No theatrics.
