Summer Salon Series: Open Mic Night with Nikki Palumbo
August 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
After a season of 11 salons, more than 1,000 registrants, and a plethora of exciting new pieces created, we are thrilled to celebrate the success of this year’s Salon Series with another virtual Open Mic Night, emceed by Girls Write Now mentor Nikki Palumbo!
We’ll be giving YOU the Zoom floor for two whole minutes to share your favorite work that you’ve written with us this summer. You can perform poetry, standup, fiction, music, an essay, a letter—all kinds of writing are welcome!
Nikki Palumbo is obviously a writer and comedian based in New York. Her writing has appeared on The New Yorker, McSweeney’s, The Belladonna, Reductress, the Google Assistant, and her parents’ fridge. Three hundred years ago, she hosted the standup show Queer Tiger Beat at Henrietta Hudson, for the culture!
Our Summer Salons—hosted in Zoom and open to the public—are a space for our community to learn from and write with some incredible authors, poets, journalists, and novelists. The Girls Write Now Summer Salon Series is an extension of our Writing Works Program.
