PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic Series

dave-atkinson-scaledDave Atkinson will be the featured reader at the P.E.I. Writers’ Guild open mic on Thursday, January 12, at 7 p.m. at Receiver Coffee Co., 128 Richmond St. in Charlottetown.

Dave is an award-winning freelance journalist, columnist, and broadcaster. His work for the CBC has aired on The Current, Atlantic Voice, Tapestry, Maritime Magazine, and regional radio programs across the country. He and his wife are homeschooling their three silly kids in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Dave is the author of two books for kids aged 8-12, Wereduck and Cure for Wereduck, published by Nimbus.

All are welcome to this free event. The first ten writers to sign up may read from their work – poetry or prose – for 3 to 5 minutes. Following a short break to enjoy some of The Receiver’s delicious offerings, Dave will read.

The Open Mic Series will continue to run on the second Thursday of each month.
