The Verbose open mic rules:
Please apply in advance. To get in touch with the organisers of Verbose, please email email@example.com (please note, firstname.lastname@example.org is no longer monitored).
Ten open mic slots are available.
When the ten slots are full, we add your name to the reserve list.
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.
