Queer Open Mic 

When: Fri., Dec. 21, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: donations accepted

While most bookstores are taking a break from lit events to forge full-steam ahead during the high season of consumerism, Modern Times Bookstore Collective (2919 24th St., San Francisco) is squeezing in some time for another holiday "c-word": community. On Friday, Dec. 21, it'll welcome back SF favorite The Queer Open Mic, featuring San Francisco-based writer, cartoonist, and comedian Nick Leonard. The setup is simple: Participants sign up for five-minute timeslots to read poetry, short stories, and essays of their liking. Although the theme is queer, pieces need not be queer-centric, and participants also shouldn't feel limited by the medium -- past mic-holders have performed slam poetry or played accordion. The list fills up fast, so make sure to show up early if you have a piece to share. 7:30 p.m., donations accepted. ModernTimesBookstore.com
