Words on fire at Alberni open mic night

“Words on Fire”: it’s a new name but the same successful Spoken Word event that has been held for the past two years.

Words on Fire, Port Alberni’s Open Mike, meets Wednesday, May 25 at Char’s Landing. The open mike night features readings by poets, short story writers, storytellers, novelists and songwriters.    Come and share your words, or simply listen.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the fun starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $5.00 at the door and includes coffee/tea and goodies.

There will be a draw for free admittance at the next Words on Fire.

The featured reader this month is  Fran Thiessen. She emcees both Words on Fire and WordStorm in Nanaimo, is published in the anthology One Sweet Ride and has read at many venues on Vancouver Island, including Forestfest.   She will share several of her short stories.
