Open Mic

We had a wonderful open mic on Tuesday, Oct 25, with over 20 people in attendance. There was a nice mix of personal essays, short stories and poetry. Afterward, we enjoyed coffee from the New Moon, a cheese and sausage tray, and other snacks.

It was great to meet members of the newly formed Oshkosh poetry club and future collaborations are likely!
