Chinwag Open Mic Event

Chinwag Open Mic Events at Aberystwyth Arts Centre
Wed 9 October & Wed 4 December 7.45 pm

The Word Distillery invites you to Chinwag!

This event will run every 8 weeks at Aberystwyth Art Centre. There will be performances by guest writers as well as an opportunity to take part in the Open Mic hosted by local poet and performer Mike Smith.

If you have five minutes of material, either prose or poetry, that you'd like to share or road-test with an audience then come along. Make sure you arrive early to sign up with Mike at round 7 pm - Chinwag always proves to be a very popular event.  

Are you interested in being a Guest Reader?   We are looking for published writers. This event will give you an opportunity to share your material with an audience and to chat to fellow poets and writers. Please get in touch with Mike if you'd like to take part.

One way or another, we'd love to see you there!
