Around a month before the 3rd Queens Lit Fest, we present a poetry, prose and spoken word open mic (NO MUSIC) as a way to continue building community in our great borough's spacious, diverse literary landscape.
But as much as we'd love to have a long list of open mic'ers and hear many different voices, we would love to have supporters and lovers of the literary arts as well.
Bring friends. Spread the word.
You can sign up for a open mic slot at the door for FREE at 6:30pm or for a $5 MINMUM donation (though you're welcome to give more) to the Queens Lit Fest guarantee your slot within a one-hour window of your choice.
Each open mic slot is a maximum time limit of 5 minutes.Please respect that. We want everyone to have a chance to share their words.

By Subway: Take the R or M train to 36th Street at Northern Boulevard in Queens
Time: Doors open at 6:30, open mic begins at 7pm
