About the Show
Make Believers! is a monthly literary performance series in central Vermont. Part cabaret and part open mic, Make Believers! invites writers and artists of all stripes to bring writing to life. Intrepid open micers and showstopping headliners have free reign to share the words they love however they like.
It’s a night of surprise, laughter, obsession, fervor, and encouragement. All are welcome—all genres, ages, colors, and identities. Come show your stuff, or just grab a drink and see what’s in store.
