The Verbose open mic rules:
Ten open mic slots are available.
When the ten slots are full, we add your name to the reserve list.
Please apply for an open mic slot via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE FOR 2017: we will be in touch in the week preceding Verbose to let you know if you are on the first list or reserve list. We won’t be replying to emails before, sorry.
There is no theme, just read poetry or prose which you think might be appropriate (and not offensive).
All open mic acts are limited to three minutes each MAXIMUM (including any preamble you might wish to give). Please ensure you practise and time your piece(s), and be ready to go when your name is called. We have a lot of ace stuff to get through and we don’t want to run over.
Let us know in advance if you would prefer to be scheduled earlier or later in the evening and we will do our best to accommodate you. And let us know in advance if you can no longer make the evening, then we can reallocate your slot.
