The Literary Arts Open Mic event at Tatnuck Booksellers is reportedly new to the Westborough area. As open mics are most common in the Boston area, suburbia rarely gets a taste of the diversity open mic events bring. That is why I.W.A. Publishing Services decided to make the experience easily accessible to New Englanders who prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle of downtown Boston.
An open mic is a venue which gives artists a platform to display their talent. The participant is required to sign their name on a list that the moderator will use to conduct the event. The artist usually has anywhere from three to seven minutes to perform, recite, or read and is usually called to perform more than once depending on the number of participants. This is a place where amateurs and professionals come together to step into the arena of public speaking and try out new material. Professionals can market their business, authors can advertise their book, and aspiring writers can find the right publisher that best fit their needs.
Community Advocate writer and photographer Ed Karvoski Jr. who originally came to report the event, eventually decided to participate by reading one of his published articles.
The Literary Open Mic is meant to inspire, educate, and entertain. It also is a perfect venue for artists to network, further their literary talent or just come and make friends and be entertained.
