Join your fellow attendees and share your stuff at our open mic night in a cozy location, with cash bar.


  • Sign up at registration desk beginning Friday; sign ups end at 8 p.m.
  • 10-12 readers selected at random, based on time available
  • Each participant will have FIVE minutes to read – please prepare a timed cutting in advance


Note: We’d like to end the open mic by 10:15 p.m., but based on energy and interest during the event, we may consider extending to fit in a few more readers. We’ll go no later than 11 p.m. Just remember: Saturday’s a big day!

Emcee: Matthew Kabik, representing The Triangle, a local sponsor (and also Third Point Press)

(New this year: We’ve moved the open mic night to Friday evening based on feedback that Saturday was already a long day! We also moved the open mic from a conference hall to a cozier location in the hotel. We heard you, HippoCampers!)
