Minutes of Writers House meeting on Open Mics, 3/19/96

taken by Shawn Walker

Present: Dave Deifer, Noah Krasner, Teresa Leo, Cecily Kellogg, Charlie O'Hay, Shawn Walker

Cecily Kellogg and Charlie O'Hay, a couple with a lot of experience hosting poetry events downtown and around Philadelphia, are interested in hosting Open Mics at the Writers House, at the invitation of Dave Deifer. They are willing to host a monthly series, one time this semester before we close, and regularly next semester. They are interested in being regular hosts, accessible to students, and in helping the Writers House connect with the wider Philadelphia community.

It was suggested that each reading may have two featured readers: a local Philadelphia writer and a Penn student, each who would read for 15 minutes each before the open mic. It was not decided whether either of these people would be paid.

This month's Open Mic was scheduled for Wednesday, April 16th at 7:30 PM.

Cecily Kellogg can be contacted to arrange future events at (h) 235-2986 and (w) 659-8856.
