PITTSBORO - The Central Carolina Community College Creative Writing program invites the public to join writers of prose and poetry for its spring open mic night.

The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, in the Mary Hayes Holmes Meeting Room at the Chatham Community Library, 197 N.C. Highway 87, Pittsboro. Light hors d'oeuvres will be provided.

This spring's event is dedicated to the late Bonnie Korta. She was an active member of the creative writing community, and among her many published works and accolades was awarded the 2017 North Carolina Poetry Society (NCPS) Poet Laureate Award. She was a founding member of the CCCC Creative Writing program Open Mic event.

  • Sign in when you arrive.
  • Read in the order you signed in (if you want to read later in the evening, sign at the bottom of the page).
  • Plan on a total of six minutes for your turn -- including any introductions, background information, and closing remarks you wish to make.
