One thought on “April Reading

  1. Wow! Terrific batch of Open Mic readers tonight (14!) and inspiring work from Invited Readers Keyan Bowes and Andy Romine. Rumplestiltskin retold in a web blog, a woman finds a giant piece of animated fruit in her bed, masquerading as secret-spies on another planet, tapping into the core memories of a loved one in the midst of a war, how to find your soulmate at the end of the world . . . it just gets better and better!
