Take the Plunge: Open Mic Night with Leanne Dunic

Come join us for Take the Plunge, a night of creativity and community as we host a free Open Mic Night with local writers, and featuring Leanne Dunic, author of One and Half of You, To Love the Coming End, and The Gift. Leanne will read from her most recent work, Wet, a lyric novel with photos.

In Wet, a transient Chinese American model working in Singapore thirsts for the unattainable: fair labour rights, the extinguishing of nearby forest fires, breathable air, healthy habitats for animals, human connection. She navigates place and placelessness while observing other migrant workers toiling outdoors despite the hazardous conditions. In photographs and language shot through with empathy and desire, Wet unravels complexities of social stratification, sexual privation, and environmental catastrophe.

Whether you want to share your own writing or poetry, or enjoy listening to others express themselves, this event is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in a storytelling experience. Register now to save your seat! Click here to sign up.
