Open Mic 6 October with Sumit Khanna

Inky Fingers Open Mic

Tuesday 6th October, 8pm
Forest Café, Lauriston Place

The Inky Fingers Open Mic is back once again! On the first Tuesday of the month between 8-11 pm, it’s free to come and free for anyone to perform, regardless of style, experience, or identity.

We want to hear from YOU. We want your poems, your rants, your ballads, your short stories, your diaries, your experimental texts, your heart, your mind, your body. We want the essay on your summer holidays you wrote when you were four, your adolescent haiku, and extracts from your eventually-to-be-completed epic fantasy quadrilogy. We want to hear your best new work as well. And we want people to care about the way words are performed.

We are very excited to announce that this month’s feature is Sumit Khanna.

Originally from the United States, Sumit Khanna began preforming two years ago, when he moved to New Zealand. In his day job, he was a mild software engineer, but at night he turned into a superhero fighting crime. Not really. But he can tell a mean story. After traveling throughout Australia and New Zealand, he’s brining his stories to Edinburgh (and possible picking up some new ones).

Open Mic slots are five minutes long; e-mail to sign up and be sure of a slot. Get there for 7.30 and have a chat with the people at the café to find the Inky organisers. We’ll see you there!
