Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Join us for "In Your Own Words", a monthly storytelling open mic hosted by the Creative Writing Centre at the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education

Each month, readers who wish to take part have 3-5 minutes to read their piece. Readings might be fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, script, screenplay, or something in between. As long as it’s in your own words, most things go. These pieces might be published, yet-to-be published, or works in progress.  

We’ll be on zoom so you can join from anywhere. All are welcome to listen. 

The Open Mic events take place on the last Wednesday of every month, with the next session on 31 July 2024.

If you’d like a 3–5-minute reading slot, email Yvonne at
