Every third Tuesday of the month, Aqua Books presents their open mic series, Soapbox, hosted by Kelly Hughes.
Soapbox starts at 7:00 p. m. and consists of 2 open-mic sets and a short break in between. This is Winnipeg's only cross-genre open mic series.
Bring your fiction, memoirs, fragments, poetry, songs, and anything you've written for your 4 minutes of fame.
On September 21 Soapbox will feature Aqua Books' Writer-in-Residence, poet Kerry Ryan.
Kerry Ryan's first collection of poetry, The Sleeping Life, was published in 2008 and nominated for the Aqua Lansdowne Prize for Poetry in 2009. She has had poetry published in a number of journals, including Prairie Fire, Grain, Room, CV2 and Carousel. Her second collection, Vs., is forthcoming this fall.
Have a great day. How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
