Teen Open Mic

“I always begin at the left with the opening word of the sentence and read toward the right and I recommend this method.” - James Thurber


Feel like reading your stuff in front of people, but can’t find an open mic for anyone under 18? Well, look no further. Thurber House hosts an open mic night solely for teens ages 13–19. Come, sign up, read. It’s that easy. Even if you just want to come hear some great writing by people your own age, that’s cool too. And yes, there are snacks!

Teen Open Mic is held monthly at Thurber Center, 91 Jefferson Avenue, Columbus, OH 43215. The cost is $5 at the door.
