US and Canadian Poetry Open Mikes

Swirl On the Square Inc


The Whistlestop Writers Open Mic is open to all genres: poetry, fiction, nonfiction, etc. No feature, just great wine, great food, and great writing! Each writer has 5 minutes (about 750 words). We meet at Swirl on the Square, a historic blacksmith shop turned wine bar, located in downtown Livermore. Join us on the 4th Wednesday of every month. Sign ups start at 6:45. Open mic begins at 7.

Whistlestop Writers. Because the best stories start in the most unlikely places… NOTE: In November and December we have a single open mic on the Wednesday FOLLOWING the 4th Wednesday in November, which either falls in November or December. (It will make sense when you look at a calendar. We promise.) In January, we return to the 4th Wednesday.

Cost: Free
