If you have any questions about this event, please email Monica Locker, firstname.lastname@example.org .
See you very soon!
Stories should be “spooky” or have to do with campus lore; All submissions should be no longer than 5-7 minutes long when read aloud; We welcome material that is scary but not inappropriate or offensive.
Get into the Halloween spirit! The Libraries and the English Department are hosting a spooky stories-themed Open Mic Night live via Zoom on October 22 from 9-10 pm. Participants can either read their stories (or parts of longer dark and dreary works) live or else submit a video ahead of time. You can also have someone else read your work for you if you would prefer.
Submissions will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. There will be extra time at the end of the event to read more spooky stories aloud.
GET READY FOR A SPOOKY TIME
