Writer’s Open Mic Night with Live Music and Art Accompaniment

A writer’s open mic night featuring live music and art accompaniment! Have you ever wondered what your poem would sound like as a song, or look like as a doodle? Come find out!  How does that work? Well, as you read your story, SCA staff artist Alisia Glasier will create an original doodle inspired by the piece, and singer-songwriter Stephen Wilger will play a song that fits the “mood” of the piece. The audience will get to experience your piece in three different mediums, and you get to go home with a souvenir piece of art.  Please join us on Wednesday May 8th from 6-8 pm for this event.
