October Open Mic Night!

Our September Open mic was pre-empted by the WFNB Fall Retreat at Villa Madonna Retreat House in Rothesay, which was a gorgeous, warm weekend to enjoy working on projects and lots of stimulating conversation.

But we're back in the saddle, and ready for you all to bring your works-in-progress October 1 at 6:30 pm via Zoom.

Welcome to the Shoulder Season. October is all about the warm colours that defy the coming cold weather: yellow corn, orange pumpkins, red and gold leaves, cranberry wine, spicy nutmeg, pink ham and golden-brown turkey. Don't break out the sweaters just yet, though: it might be cold in the morning, but it's warm by the afternoon.

We have an ongoing opportunity to share the recordings of our open mic events on 107.3 FM in Saint John, the UNBSJ/community station. Anyone who'd like to participate in the reading, but not in the public broadcast, can be edited out. Airing these events does increase and enhance the profile of WFNB, as well as that of our readers. But we certainly understand if you'd prefer to keep it just between us. We will be adding the recorded live readings to our members-only section--if you'd like to be edited out of any of them, just say the word.

Poetry, prose, screenplay--even songs. Whatever is keeping your creative juices flowing, we wanna hear it! You know the drill: a maximum of 15 readers, with five minutes each to read. Just want to listen? The public can register as audience only. Looking forward to hearing you all on Saturday, October 1.
