December 1, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Indy Reads in partnership with Booth: A Journal for an Open Mic on December 1st at 6:30pm! Both poetry and prose writers are welcome!

Indy Reads and Booth (students, faculty, and alumni from the Butler University MFA program) are excited to partner for this return of our open mic on December 1st at 6:30pm!

Registration for this public poetry & prose open mic begins at 5pm and the event will begin at 6:30pm. Come read your stuff! Please prepare 5-7 minutes worth of material.

Booth will host the open mic in Indy Reads’ community bookstore. Due to the possibility of adult language and themes, we recommend attendees and participants are 16+ for this event.

Booth publishes four titles of original literature on the first Friday of every month. In addition, they publish two print issues yearly, usually in summer and winter. Booth debuted in 2009. Their staff is comprised of students, faculty, and alumni from the Butler University MFA program. Butler MFA students and alumni execute approximately 98% of Booth. Copy editing, web design, print issues, t-shirts and merch, and so on. Find out more about Booth here: https://booth.butler.edu/about-us/.
