Updates! – First Open Mic and General Meetings

Hello all!

Our first Open Mic Night of the year is coming up! For this event, we’ll be partnering with the UCR Honors Journal, Audeamus.


It’s at Back to the Grind, which is a wonderful coffee shop in downtown Riverside. They are a cash only venue, so bring some dollars and support the establishment!

You can perform whatever you’d like, whether it’s poetry, prose, music, comedy, or anything in between. We’re excited to hear all of it!

Remember: October 7th, at 6:00pm. Don’t forget!

Now, in addition to this, Mosaic is going to be doing things a little differently this year. We’re a student org, so we’re going to be having general meetings!

If you attended any of our Writing Salons last year, we’ll be doing similar stuff: talking about writing, how to read like writers, that sort of thing. We’ll also be talking about Mosaic events, and industry-related things like publishing and writing programs. Basically, it’s a way for creative writers who are not currently Mosaic Editors to be involved in the process.


These meetings will be held Mondays at 6:00pm in INTS 2138, and will be starting this upcoming Monday, October 10th. We hope to see all of you there!

Also, just a reminder, we are currently open for submissions, so check out our Submission Guidelines and send your wonderful work our way! We can’t wait to read it!

And don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about Mosaic 55! So if you had work accepted last year, or if you’re just really excited about Mosaic in general, don’t worry–it’s still on it’s way. Mosaic 55 is slated for a winter release at this point, so check back for an official release date once we get closer.

Happy living!
