Wordier Than Thou’s next storytelling and prose open mic is Tuesday, Feb. 11, 7 p.m., at Stardust Video and Coffee.

Here’s some more info about the event:

This unique open mic focuses on storytelling — no poetry or music. So come share your finest prose, or if you’re just in the mood for listening, catch some tales from our area’s wordsmiths.

Readings will begin around 7 p.m.

Featured readers will kick off the night, and will be followed by open mic slots. Open mic readers get 10 minutes and will be timed.

This month’s featured readers are Suzannah Gilman and Lynn Waddell.

Gilman is an editor and contributor to the cooperative blog, The Gloria Sirens, a virtual auditorium to showcase women writers. A licensed attorney, she has published poetry, essays, fiction and nonfiction. Her work has appeared in The Florida Review, Pearl, CALYX Journal, The Dead Mule School of Southern
Literature, Slow Trains and others. She has twice been nominated for a Puschart Prize.

Waddell is an award-winning journalist and author of “Fringe Florida,” an offbeat tome that takes readers inside some of the state’s most eclectic and daring worlds. She’s covered major Florida news stories for national publications such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Newsweek,
DailyBeast.com and NPR.com. She’s worked for the Las Vegas Sun and the Weekly Planet.

Suggested donation of $5 at the door.
