We're bringing back the ever-popular Island Style Slam and know you'll have a wonderful evening. We're partying in Room 204 upstairs at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center. The party starts at 6:00 PM and you can help us decorate!
Bring a holiday snack to share and RASP will provide beverages, pens, and paper.

RASP's Open Mic gives you the opportunity to share your work with a receptive audience.
Each month, we open up the microphone to everyone to share their poetry and prose with a receptive audience. You can also participate by relaxing and listening to the words of others.
If you have written something you would like to read, show up early and sign up for a time slot. Time slots are scheduled before and after the featured reader. Details and guidelines are at our Open Mic page.
Discuss and improve your poetry & prose! Bring your poem or story to our Poetry & Prose Circle. We'll gather to share our writing, then offer ideas for improvement. Take away a new perspective on your creative work.
Day: Second Tuesday of each month
Time: 6:30-8:45 PM
Admission: Free, no registration required
Place: Redmond Regional Library
Bring: Something written that you're willing to share and get feedback on.
