KWG hosts open mic night

Knoxville Writers’ Guild will host its popular Holiday Open Mic and Potluck on Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017, at 7 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church. Members and anyone curious about KWG are encouraged to attend and to bring a covered dish or snack to share. This public event will be in the Fellowship Hall of the church, 201 E. Third Ave. Central United Methodist is a handicapped accessible building and offers plentiful free parking. A $2 donation at the door is suggested.

This is a wonderful event to meet other writers, buy and sell books, and enjoy holiday food with friends.

Guidelines for participants include:

1) You must be a current member of the Knoxville Writers’ Guild to read or sell books, although anyone may come to listen, mix and mingle. You can join or renew your membership before the readings begin. To establish speaker order, there will be a sign-up sheet at the door for those taking part.

2) What you read should be your own work or that of another guild member. If it will be the work of another KWG member, you are required to have permission to read his/her work.

3) Your reading time will be three to four minutes maximum, depending on the number of people who sign up.

4) What you read should be suitable for a general audience.

Members who wish to sell books will be given table space.


The Knoxville Writers Guild Membership is $30 and $15 for students. Visit
