TUNKHANNOCK — Authors from the Dietrich Theater Writers Group will be featured in Open Mic on Friday, Aug. 26 the Dietrich Theater. Everyone is invited to come and hear excerpts from their works.

These writers who are honing their craft at the Dietrich Theater’s Writers Group every Thursday evening would like to share their stories with the Open Mic audience, giving them yet another way to receive input by way of the audience reaction.

One of the authors is Hildy Morgan, who was a guest essayist five times so far on WVIA-FM. Audience members will hear her story, poignantly relating what it is like to be married to a Vietnam War veteran.

Open Mic is a free event held on the fourth Friday of the month at the theater from March through October. Musicians, writers, comedians, and performers of all types are invited to share their talents on the Fassett Performing Arts Studio stage. Doors open for sign-ups at 6:30 p.m. and their performances begin at 7 p.m. The evening begins with the new performers and continues with the featured guests.

For information about Open Mic, call 570-996-1500.
