PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic Series – Dianne Hicks Morrow


Dianne Hicks Morrow will read at the PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic Thursday, June 8, at 7 p.m. at Receiver Coffee Co. in Charlottetown. After hosting the Open Mics when she served as PEI poet laureate, Hicks Morrow is now delighted to be a featured reader.

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, Dianne will read.

Dianne’s award-winning poetry appears in two collections published by Acorn Press Canada: Long Reach Home and What Really Happened Is This: A Poetry Memoir. The latter won the 2012 PEI Book Award for poetry.

Her non-fiction books include Kindred Spirits: Relationships That Spark the Soul and Fixing Up the Farmhouse: Forty Years of Living, Loving, and Lamenting, both published by Acorn Press. She also teaches two writing courses at seniors’ college and has enjoyed giving readings and workshops across Canada, and in Mexico and Australia.

The Open Mic Series is going on hiatus for the summer, but don’t worry. We’ll be back in September, full of exciting new writing to share with you.

Happy writing!
