A fun and encouraging open mic.
There really is no requirement for what you bring to be a 'thing' e.g. poetry, prose, a story etc. It might just be something you wrote in a spare moment that made you kind of go 'huh?'. It could even be someone else's writing you really admire and just want to share its brilliance.
Sharing your writing - whatever it may be
Builds confidence in your writing/in yourself
Feel inspired and connected
Gain insight and perspective
