Monthly Open Mic at Deltaville Library Saturday, August 10

The Writers Guild of Virginia will host an Open Mic at the Deltaville Library on Saturday, August 10 at 11:00 am. Light refreshments will be served.

“Writers who wish to read their work for the audience should arrive at about 10:45 am to sign up to be included in the program,” Jeanne Johansen, a member of the Board for the Writers Guild said. “Readers will be limited to one of the following: prose up to 2,500 words, five poems of no more than 50 lines each, or five haiku. No book chapters please, unless they stand alone as independent stories.”

The event is free and open to the public. “We invite all writers in the area to participate in the Open Mic. Mark your calendars and plan to enjoy the works written by the many talented writers living in this community,” Johansen said. The Writers Guild of Virginia is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to writers at all stages of their writing journey. For more information, or to join the Guild, please visit their website at
