Crook & Folly Open Mic Night, Submission Deadline Extended

By Robert M. Keding
contributor to the Underground


On a rainy Thursday night in the University Center for Writing-Based Learning, over twenty-five DePaul students and alumni gathered to share their work—poetry, fiction, flash fiction, and dramatic literature. Almost everybody who attended ended up sharing a piece for the group, with many of the readers being members of Crook & Folly or the Writing Center, the two organizations which collaborate to host such open mic nights every year. Many of the attendees, in fact, are repeats from previous open mics, finding past events so beneficial that they can’t help but come back.

Crook & Folly, DePaul’s own award-winning literary magazine, is accepting submissions for their 2017 issue through March 8th. They accept poetry, fiction, and flash fiction, and are seeking dramatic lit and creative nonfiction submissions in particular. This is a great way for aspiring or accomplished writers to get their work published and read within DePaul and the broader Chicago literary community.
