Ugly Holiday Sweater Party & Open Mic
Saturday, Dec 8, 2018
12:00pm – 4:00pm
Join the WCYR for an afternoon of fun, food, great literature and friends. Have a chance to wear those ugly holiday togs you keep hidden all year. Bring a short piece of your fiction, nonfiction or poetry to read aloud at our open mic. We’ll also have raffle prizes and a buffet lunch.
Every attendee will get a chance to win a ticket to next year’s WCYR one-day writing conference with Terry Fallis as guest speaker!
NEW THIS YEAR: bring a used book for our gift exchange!
Here are the details:
Ugly Holiday attire is not required, but come on, when else do you get to wear a sweater with tinsel? Prizes will be awarded for the best ugly sweater.
Open mic is optional. If you would like to participate, bring a piece of writing to read aloud. So that everyone has a chance to read, please limit your reading to 3 minutes (about 500 words). Readers will be drawn at random. Put your name in that hat to read at the door.
Gift exchange: Please bring one wrapped, used book. Write the genre of the book on the wrapping.
Preregistration is required for this event. No pay-at-the-door tickets will be available.
The party starts at 12:00pm on Saturday, December 8th, 2018. We’ll be at the Ray Twinney Recreation Complex (Lounge 1) in Newmarket. Registration ends December 6th, 2018.
