BOO! CAA Open Mic Fright Night!

Hello all you ghouls and ghosts! CAA will be having an Open Mic Fright Night on Thursday October 24th, 2013 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM.

Ravenous Rose-Ann has made a spooky poster to view, download and/or share, it’s frightfully delicious! (Check out her amazing graphic of Skeletor at the Microphone! MUH-WAH-HA-HA!) Come dressed as your favourite author (or come as you are) if you dare read your spooktacular and horrifying original pieces of poetry or stories.

I will include a few writing prompts in my next post to help you release your inner beast and write something quite terrifying to share at this event. Anyone who needs a ride to this event, feel free to contact one of the head witches in our [writing] coven, Rose-Ann >:D
