Writer's Gallery: Open Mic Night for Writers

03-28-2019

Come to the Center for the Arts for the relaunch of Bay County’s favorite open-mic night for writers—the “Writer’s Gallery”—on the 4th Thursday of every month, from 7pm-9pm. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Our “Writer’s Gallery” will have a speakeasy theme, so doll up in your glad rags and pop on over to our juice joint to have a swell time with the gang!

(Feel free to wear whatever you want, but if you want to dress in a Prohibition era outfit, you get a gold star!)

Attendees should come to the original entrance of the Center for the Arts—the blue door on E 4th St—prepared with this month’s password (see our Facebook page for the hints). Everyone with the password gets in for free. Otherwise, you have to pay $5 at the door.

Once you’ve chosen your method of entry, you will be sent up the backstairs to the main gallery. For those patrons who have a hard time navigating stairs, the handicap accessible entrance will also be open, as well as the elevator.

Wine and beer will be on sale, but there will also be water or soda for the teetotalers in the audience.

It will be a perfect night for kicking back, getting inspired, and having fun listening to the works of some really creative people in our community.

We suggest the audience be 18+ years in age, but if you’d like to bring your child, we do caution that it is an open mic night, and while we have restrictions against hate speech and overly explicit language, we cannot control what it read, so a parental advisory is in place.

HOW TO SIGN UP AS A SPEAKER
Writers, poets, and spoken word artists are all welcome to sign up for an 8-minute open mic slot on the day of the event by calling in, emailing, or coming in-person to the Center for the Arts.

Our motto is “Write Hard. Speak Easy.” So don’t sweat it! Do your hard work when you’re writing and take it easy in front of the mic. It’s not meant to be scary. It’s supposed to be fun!

HISTORY ON THE “WRITER’S GALLERY”
The Writer’s Gallery was started by Lee Baker, of Northstar Church, as a poetry night at Rocky Shore Coffee Co. in 2010, but when Nick Mays began volunteering for the church, Lee asked Nick to take it over. It was renamed the Writer’s Gallery and became the longest-running, consecutive open mic night for writers in Bay County. In the almost three years that the Writer’s Gallery ran, it moved around, first to the Purple Grape and then to Amavida, but when Nick moved to Pensacola, the project lost its leader, and eventually stopped running.

Local publishing group, The Syndicate, has been talking about relaunching the Writer’s Gallery for a while now, so when the Center for the Arts was planning to expand its programming, it seemed like the perfect fit. Once Nick gave his blessing, we were excited to bring the open-mic night back! Hopefully you all are, too!

In this presentation you might hear about the Grand Dame of the Everglades, his old friend Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Dessie Prescott Smith, who taught Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings how to hunt and fish, and the north woods hermit Nathan Martin, who almost never wears shoes in the 21st century Jeff Klinkenberg is a longtime journalist at the Tampa Bay Times and in 2017, was bestowed with the Florida Folk Heritage Award.

A class on creative seeing. Each week we’ll sharpen your eye by honing in on a different element of composition: perspective, framing, line, shape, pattern, texture, color, balance and symmetry. The goal is to be more intentional in your photography – seeing good composition faster,  making the photo rather than taking it. Examples for inspiration, in-class shooting, weekly assignments and critiques will help you pull it all together into remarkable photos.

Come to the Center for the Arts for the relaunch of Bay County’s favorite open-mic night for writers—the “Writer’s Gallery”—on the 4th Thursday of every month, from 7pm-9pm. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Our “Writer’s Gallery” will have a speakeasy theme, so doll up in your glad rags and pop on over to our juice joint to have a swell time with the gang!

(Feel free to wear whatever you want, but if you want to dress in a Prohibition era outfit, you get a gold star!)

Attendees should come to the original entrance of the Center for the Arts—the blue door on E 4th St—prepared with this month’s password (see our Facebook page for the hints). Everyone with the password gets in for free. Otherwise, you have to pay $5 at the door.

Once you’ve chosen your method of entry, you will be sent up the backstairs to the main gallery. For those patrons who have a hard time navigating stairs, the handicap accessible entrance will also be open, as well as the elevator.

Wine and beer will be on sale, but there will also be water or soda for the teetotalers in the audience.

It will be a perfect night for kicking back, getting inspired, and having fun listening to the works of some really creative people in our community.

We suggest the audience be 18+ years in age, but if you’d like to bring your child, we do caution that it is an open mic night, and while we have restrictions against hate speech and overly explicit language, we cannot control what it read, so a parental advisory is in place.

HOW TO SIGN UP AS A SPEAKER
Writers, poets, and spoken word artists are all welcome to sign up for an 8-minute open mic slot on the day of the event by calling in, emailing, or coming in-person to the Center for the Arts.

Our motto is “Write Hard. Speak Easy.” So don’t sweat it! Do your hard work when you’re writing and take it easy in front of the mic. It’s not meant to be scary. It’s supposed to be fun!

HISTORY ON THE “WRITER’S GALLERY”
The Writer’s Gallery was started by Lee Baker, of Northstar Church, as a poetry night at Rocky Shore Coffee Co. in 2010, but when Nick Mays began volunteering for the church, Lee asked Nick to take it over. It was renamed the Writer’s Gallery and became the longest-running, consecutive open mic night for writers in Bay County. In the almost three years that the Writer’s Gallery ran, it moved around, first to the Purple Grape and then to Amavida, but when Nick moved to Pensacola, the project lost its leader, and eventually stopped running.

Local publishing group, The Syndicate, has been talking about relaunching the Writer’s Gallery for a while now, so when the Center for the Arts was planning to expand its programming, it seemed like the perfect fit. Once Nick gave his blessing, we were excited to bring the open-mic night back! Hopefully you all are, too!

In this presentation you might hear about the Grand Dame of the Everglades, his old friend Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Dessie Prescott Smith, who taught Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings how to hunt and fish, and the north woods hermit Nathan Martin, who almost never wears shoes in the 21st century Jeff Klinkenberg is a longtime journalist at the Tampa Bay Times and in 2017, was bestowed with the Florida Folk Heritage Award.

Support for the Speaker Series is provided by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs.

A class on creative seeing. Each week we’ll sharpen your eye by honing in on a different element of composition: perspective, framing, line, shape, pattern, texture, color, balance and symmetry. The goal is to be more intentional in your photography – seeing good composition faster,  making the photo rather than taking it. Examples for inspiration, in-class shooting, weekly assignments and critiques will help you pull it all together into remarkable photos.
