Admission and $10 off at our bookstore

118 in stock

Sunday, 6:00 pm November 10, 2019

Open mic storytelling featuring you, Brooklyn! Poet and activist Mahogany L. Browne will host the campfire with guest reader Tyehimba Jess and others!

Throw your name in the hat for a chance at the mic. These stories don’t have to be true – after all, we are The Center for Fiction. They just have to be told without notes or accompaniment in 4 minutes or less. Use your voice in the way that suits you best: a tall tale, a song, a rap, a rhyme, and the audience chooses the winner!
