Saturday…

…is the big day.

We have a few spots left for the two workshops, Writing with Courage at 10 a.m. with Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm, and Screenwriting at 1:30 p.m. with Shane Belcourt. Lunch included.

Even if the workshops aren’t your thing, don’t miss the performance at 7:00 p.m. at the Oddfellows’ Hall on Main Street in Thessalon. It’s going to be a fun night, with poetry and music and good food and a chance to hang out with the artists.

Check out the article in the Sault Star!

Between the workshops and the performance, check out Tina’s on Main for good food and Forestland for a great selection of clothing and gifts and gourmet goodies.

Strut your stuff for fifty bucks! Open Mike on March 4th, 2011

Stories in the North is having its second Open Mike Night  on March 4th. The doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

What’s on? Well, that depends on who signs up to perform. This is the time for all you closet divas – and whatever the male of “diva” is – to come out and wow the crowd.

The last Open Mike brought sixteen area performers to the Legion in Thessalon to recite and read poetry, fiction and non-fiction, and to sing songs that they’d written.

This year we have the same four categories – fiction, non-fiction, poetry and songwriting. Each entrant gets up to five minutes to impress the audience with their original work.

At the end of the evening, the audience votes. The winner in each category walks away with bragging rights and fifty dollars. Did we say you couldn’t pack the hall with your friends? No, not us! Go for it!

We’ll provide coffee and snacks. (We’re not the home baking literary festival for nothing!) Tickets are $7.00 each.

Entry fee is $5.00. To register, call Elizabeth at 842-3817.
