Word Salad: A Literary Open Mic

February 20, 2024

7pm-1am

Join ArtHaus and Decorah Public Library in celebrating the power of words and the magic of storytelling at Word Salad. This enchanting evening of spoken art will be held in the Pulpit Rock Events Room on Tuesday, February 20th, starting at 7 pm. 

This special event, formerly hosted by local writer and comedian June Melby, promises a night where local voices come alive, sharing tales and experiences that resonate with the heart and stir the soul. In line with Melby’s original tagline, “locally sourced and sometimes fresh,” we aim to spotlight the diverse range of talents and perspectives that thrive in our community 

Participants will have the opportunity to take the stage and share their original works, be it poetry, short stories, or excerpts from their writings. The theme for this month’s Word Salad is “The Letter R.” Whether you are a seasoned writer or a first-time performer, we welcome all to express their creativity in a supportive and engaging atmosphere. 

Listeners can look forward to an evening filled with inspiring narratives and mesmerizing performances that reflect the rich tapestry of our local culture. It’s a chance to connect with fellow literature enthusiasts, discover new voices, and celebrate the art of storytelling. 

We encourage everyone, from aspiring authors to avid readers, to join us for this extraordinary night of literary exploration and community spirit. Let’s come together to support and cherish the vibrant literary scene of Decorah.
