University of Michigan’s Prison Creative Arts Project to present works of writers at Bookbound Dec. 12

Writers to speak, share favorite work at open mic night


ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Writers from the University of Michigan’s Prison Creative Arts Project will present pieces of work Thursday night at Bookbound in Ann Arbor.

Starting at 7 p.m., the writers and the editorial committee of the Michigan Review of Prisoner Creative Writing will read their favorite pieces during the evening after an Open Mic & Share.

Created by the Prison Creative Arts Project, the “Michigan Review of Prisoner Creative Writing” is a regularly published collection of written work by incarcerated writers. Copies will be available for purchase throughout the evening.

During the open mic portion of the event, local poets are invited to bring and read their poetry, or the poetry of another author.

Bookbount hosts Open Mic & Share events every second Thursday of each month. The next event is scheduled for Feb. 13, 2020.
