Open Mic

March 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Creative Writing students, with the support of the Liberal Arts Division of Arizona Western College, will host the second annual campus-wide Open Mic from 6:00-8:00pm on Wednesday, March 27, at the AWC Yuma Campus Academic Library. This event is the celebratory closing ceremony for the annual Student Showcase.

Writers, musicians, dancers, comics, magicians, and spoken-word artists of all types are welcome. Any four- to six-minute performance suitable for a small stage in front of a live audience is welcome. However, pre-registration is recommended as performance slots are limited.Scholarships ranging from $700 to $100 are available as prizes for student performers.“The Open Mic’s purpose is to create a relaxing performance space for artists from the college community to gather and enjoy one another’s work,” said Professor of English David Kern.While AWC encourages freedom of expression in artistic matters, participants are asked to refrain from gratuitous references to violence or slurs based on race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. The faculty and staff of AWC will have the final say on when such content has no artistic merit.

For more information or to register to perform, contact Professor David Kern at David.Kern@azwestern.edu or 928-317-5881. Open Mic registration will close March 26.
