Open mic

Free event, all welcome

Unit Four: The Cornucopia Room, 4 Towerdykeside, Hawick TD9 9EA

It’s time for the written word to become the spoken word.

The Open Mic returns to the stage at Unit Four: The Cornucopia Room. This is a great opportunity for writers to share their work with an audience in a friendly, social environment. Writers are invited to read prose or poetry for a maximum of five minutes, allowing as many people as possible to take part. Work should be suitable for people above 12 years of age.

Due to its popularity, early booking is recommended. Contact Hayley Emberey ( for details. This is a free event open to the public, although donations made will go towards the cost of room hire. Refreshments and home baking will be available at reasonable cost.
