Open Mic


Open Mic showcases local writers’ prose and poetry and celebrates the spoken word.

These events, which have been held in Kelso, Peebles, Jedburgh, Melrose and St Boswells, are open to non-members as well as a listening audience.  Refreshments are available at a small cost.

Reading slots are timed to last a maximum of five minutes (around 700 words of prose).

To book a reading slot, call Hayley Emberey at 07923 129928 or 01896 850301 or email
