Welcome to Speaking Crow the Virtual Edition! Just as before, we will be meeting the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00pm, this time via ZOOM.
We have two registration options:
1)Register to be part of an enthusiastic Speaking Crow audience, and receive the ZOOM link to attend.
2)Register to be one of the open mic readers, and receive the ZOOM link to attend. Limit 25, first-come-first-served.
Registration for both options will remain open until 7:05 pm. We will start at 7:00 sharp Central Time! (Please only register for one ticket per person: the audience and open mic links are identical.)
Speaking Crow is funded and facilitated by the Winnipeg International Writers Festival (WIWF) which is committed to creating safe and respectful opportunities for writers, volunteers, audience members, and workers to share knowledge, explore ideas, and build community.
Polish up your new poems for your 3 minutes of fame at the open mic!
Speaking Crow is a space that values diversity, creativity, and encouragement. Whether you do spoken word or page poetry, whether you’ve published widely or just started writing, we can’t wait to hear your poems.
