The Best Time to Write is Now... The Best Place to Write is Here... The Best Person to Write is You...

Writing Knights wants to feature YOU!

Writing Knights is diving into a new era for our Take the Knight Off - Inspiration Showcase.  We are embracing the idea of themes and will eventually be looking for additional places to hold open mics and features throughout the Stark County/North East Ohio area.

Some of our upcoming themes include:
July - Transition
August - Hot Summer Night 
September - Falling into Autumn 
October: Spooky Verses 
November: Hunger 
December: Will It Snow? 

For our July show in addition to our first ever sWord Fight, we also have two amazing features: John Burroughs and Paul Mangus.

But after that we don't have anyone scheduled. Part of that is a lot of our creative energy is booking for the Grand Showcase, but a bigger part is, we want people to come to us to be featured. If people come to us, then we will know they want to feature and promote themselves.

Consider this an open invitation.  If you want to feature for Writing Knights at a 2nd Friday show, email us at writingknights@live.com Subject line: "Featuring for Writing Knights." Typical features are paid $20 for 20 minutes plus negotiable travel.

A couple notes:
We typically will not feature someone for pay more than once every 6 months (this does not include sWord Fights. We are super open about those, if you want to do one a month, we'll make it work).

Features do not necessarily follow the theme, but it's a good idea to have a few pieces in conjunction.
Asking to feature sooner than later is preferred, we will only book 3 features at most.

More will be added as situations arise.

Let's get you on stage!
