Choice Cuts, Monthly Open Mic Readings

Our inaugural Choice Cuts, August 3, 2017!

AX is pleased to hold monthly open mic literary readings on the first Thursday of every month, 7:00 p.m. These evenings have become quite popular, with readers and audience members coming from across the province to attend.

Please note: Due to the continually changing dynamic around community health concerns, AX is closing our public gallery for the time being, and employees are working remotely. We have cancelled or postponed all current events and will evaluate future events on an ongoing basis – please watch this website or our Facebook page for updates.


Looking for a supportive place to try out your original writing? Join us on the first Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m. for Choice Cuts open mic literary readings, hosted in the AX gallery.

Writers of all levels, from beginner to professional, are encouraged to bring their original poetry, fiction, or non-fiction to read, and there’s no pressure. Readings are under 5 minutes each, and open mics will be hosted by a local author who will help guide the evening. Regular Choice Cuts hosts include authors Beth PowningGerard Collins, and Jane Simpson.

Whether you want to share a short piece of your work or listen to other original writers from our region, check out Choice Cuts at AX – there’s no charge to attend, and readings will take place in the gallery.
