Join us at Stage Fright, an open mic night for teens.
Since 1997, Stage Fright has been the place to share poetry, fiction, journals, songs, comedy routines, art, and more. Come to perform or just to enjoy the work and camaraderie of your peers.
Snacks, good cheer, and fearless MCs from the Young Writers Cohort round out the evening, along with guests artists from the Seattle literary community. Sign up to perform when you arrive. Each performance should be no longer than five minutes.
