Locally Sourced Open Mic
Locally Sourced: Find Inspiration in Your Own Backyard
Writers from all genres and backgrounds are invited to attend Locally Sourced, a writing workshop focused on defeating writer’s block and finding inspiration in the downtown Mankato area.
Each meeting will include a craft talk, a discussion of published work that relates to the day’s topic, and a writing exercise. After each meeting, you can email your story or poem to the instructor, an MFA candidate at Minnesota State, Mankato and fiction writer, who will respond with written feedback. The final meeting will consist of a public reading—a celebration of our summer writing and opportunity to share our poems with peers, friends, and family.
This workshop is free and open to the public.
July 14: Open Mic – 7:00PM - LAST SESSION
Everyone will get the chance to share something you created over the past four weeks— or anything at all— at the open mic night!
