• Are you a writer?
  • Want to be a writer?
  • Love words?
  • Want to support a writer friend?

Join us for Prose & Convos, an open mic reading event where people read brief excerpts of their prose and poetry, one voice at a time. Build self-confidence and gain experience presenting in front of a live audience, all in a safe, relaxing, and convivial atmosphere!

Register on the morning for one of TEN reading places or come along to socialise and make new friends with people who also love words and storytelling.

One RANDOM READING spot will be offered on the morning.

Everyone 18+ is welcome, from beginners to well-published authors to “just listeners”. No judgement – whether you read as confidently as a bestseller or you’re self-conscious with shaking hands and wobbly knees, your story matters.

SUITABLE FOR: 18+, writers

WHERE: Theatre 2

SEATING: Unreserved

RUNNING TIME: 1.5 hours
