MIND & MOUTH pizza party


  • $5 suggested donation toward pizza*

  • MIND & MOUTH is every other Monday, 4-6pm

  • Workshop series: regular attendance not required, but is beneficial.

MIND & MOUTH pizza parties take place the Monday following each open mic!

They're an opportunity for new and returning participants alike to just hang and get to know what the deal is / help determine how you want MIND & MOUTH to grow / let us know what would be useful to you to cover in the workshops / share some of our favorite work on youtube / do a low pressure creative writing exercise.

Right now MIND & MOUTH is made up of:
∙ Workshops: every other Monday Briauna leads a workshop, with an intent of creating new content (through prompts and activities) and strengthening your presentation skills. Activities are varied, short, low-pressure, and based around who's attending and their needs.
∙ Free-writes: on alternating Mondays, Briauna is here as a resource - come use Marrow as a space to write, and check in with her for editing, advice, or critique and help on your recitation!
∙ Open mics: you know the deal with the open mics!

And we’re considering expanding to include:
∙ Writing sales: like a craft fair/zine symposium but with all 24 and under writers! an opportunity to sell your zines, cds, found text poems - whatever you create that involves words.
∙ Book swaps: bring books you’ve already read! pass them along to someone else! find rad new books!
∙ A podcast: or other recording of some sort. either ongoing or a couple times a year.
∙ ???: what else should MIND & MOUTH include? do you want guest writers to come in? poem parties (idk what that means, you tell us) - come chat and let us know!

We’ll have gluten free and dairy free pizza! (If you have other pizza-related dietary restrictions let us know asap!)
