Nor’easter Open. Featuring: Beth Bosworth and D. Nurkse.
A monthly open mic brought to you by Quincy Scott Jones and Nina Sharma Jones, founders of the Nor’easter Exchange, a floating literary reading series that brings together multicultural writers from the tri-state area to meet, read and collaborate. The Nor’easter Open is held on the second Friday of each month and welcomes two featured readers followed by an open mic. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early (3:45pm) to sign up for the open mic, and allot 3 minutes for your reading. Co-sponsored by Certain Circuits Magazine.
