We’re joining together one last time during this (weird) semester for a virtual reading, open mic and party time, with funky virtual tunes. Feel free, for the open mic portion, to share with us a song, video, dance or, of course, a reading that has helped you through this time.

WHERE: Zoom meeting! For Zoom ID, password, and open mic sign-up, please email takeplacereadings@gmail.com
WHAT:  Featured reading and open mic. All literary and experimental genres are welcome! Open mic slots are about 2 minutes each and open to SFSU students (future, present or past), professors (please!) & community members.
