PLU Open Mic featuring René Ghosh

November 26, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:55 pm

Saddle up for another Open Mic adventure, this week with resident special guest and tallest Canadian ever, René Ghosh. For everyone shorter than René, sign-up starts around 20h and we welcome any and all genres of performance: poetry, prose, song and stupid human tricks. The only limit is your imagination (and the host’s patience).

 

René Ghosh has been published in places too numerous to mention. In addition to all those numerous places, he also has a piece in the 2015 Fall PLU magazine.
René was born in Montréal, Québec in 1972 and grew up not far from there in Rigaud, a village with cows, mechanics, future mechanics, and future cows. He attended Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal where he studied engineering and dreamed of writing sci-fi.
He moved to Paris in 1999 and has worked in IT ever since, writing short stories to escape into, and then escaping back into IT when the stories got weird. He has done a lot of amateur stage acting. He finally made his way into writing long form and wrote his debut novel, Puppet Dancers, in 2014. This year he published his second novel, The Click Shortcuts, about the development of an alphabet in an alphabet-less world when mobile phones and texting render it necessary.
He is a regular attendee at Open Mic, and if you ask the others: an all-too-frequent participant.
