Are the words swirling in your head begging to be vocalized? Are they written on bits of paper, bar napkins and backs of receipts? Do you lack the confidence to share your creation with others? Sounds like you need the Writers Place (3607 Pennsylvania, 816-753-1090). For those wanting to ease into the literary waters, the midtown center is collaborating with the Uptown Arts Bar &(3611 Broadway, 816-960-4611) for Blue Mondays
, a free spoken-word open mic, the second Monday of each month. Sign up at the bar. The event lasts from 8 to 10 p.m. See writersplace.org
for more information.
