Austin Writers Roulette is an uncensored, theme-inspired spoken word and storytelling event. It features a different monthly theme and line up of artists who perform their original written works such as poetry, essays, spoken word, singer-songwriting, or excerpts from novels for 5-8 minutes (1200 words or fewer). Interested artists who would like to perform for an upcoming event can email their submission to [email protected]
Or you can show up during the day of the event and sign up for the open mic after all the featured artists perform. And of course, performance art lovers are always welcome!
This month’s theme is “Shock of a New Beginning.” Featured artists are BRENNAN UTLEY, RYAN GOSSEN, HOPE RUIZ, AUDREY BRAZEEL, URSULA PIKE, TERESA Y. ROBERSON, and THOM THE WORLD POET. An open mic follows after intermission. Visit the Austin Writers Roulette website for more information: austinwritersroulette.com
* A note on parking: Our landlord has requested that we ask everyone to please only use the store parking lot for attending events at Malvern Books and stores within the Park Plaza Shopping Center. Unfortunately, if you leave your car before or after an event (if you park out front with the intention of getting a meal across the road before attending an event here, for instance), there's a chance your car could be towed or booted, and we’d hate for that to happen! If parking is unavailable in the store parking lot, please use residential streets. Or on Sundays you can park at Cabo Bob’s, as they’re closed all day. And if you park in our lot, please watch out for potholes! *
* Accessibility: Malvern Books has a wheelchair ramp and is wheelchair accessible. We also have two accessible parking spots by the ramp and a single occupancy ADA standard restroom. If you have other accessibility needs or need other accommodations, please call us at 512-322-2097. *
