Chad Sweeney, CSUSB English professor: ‘Open mic readings show that everyone’s story matters’
The Sun/The Press-Enterprise/Redlands Daily Facts/Inland Valley Daily Bulletin
Feb. 1, 2020
Chad Sweeney, associate professor of English at Cal State San Bernardino, wrote: “I love hosting ‘open-microphone’ readings, attending open mics, reading in them, supporting friends and students who are reading in them, just as much now as when I was first getting started as a young writer.
“Open mic readings — in cafes, libraries, bars, galleries, garages and universities — invite anyone and everyone to share their creative writing with the live audience, be they well-published writers, high school students, part-time enthusiasts, war veterans, hair stylists or professors, whether the piece is memorized and performed with flashes of genius or read timidly with shaking hands and eyes glued to the page.”
