Special Events

Following its first celebration of authors, books, and their fans last fall, Milford Readers and Writers Festival extends its brand  with a community storytelling program featuring authors and open mic segment.  This monthly event is held at the TriVersity Center (Upper Delaware GLBT Center).

This new offering, co-sponsored by TriVersity, is hosted by Milford resident Ruby Lynn Willis, a local performance artist. Curated for an adult audience (attendees/participants must be 18 or older), the program will include a storytelling Slam and an open mic segment for storytelling recitations. “A Slam is a creative competition.” explains Ms. Willis. “Each performer will be allotted seven minutes to tell us a story based on the monthly theme. The story must belong to the teller, be original and true. No prompts or props allowed. The audience will vote on its favorite piece and prizes will be awarded.” This format loosely follows the StorySLAM events hosted by The Moth organizations nationwide. Both published authors and novices alike are welcome and encouraged to participate.

DC Caruso was born in Flushing New York. She grew up with her family in a home in Bayside, New York. When she was 8 years old she read her first 'Nancy Drew Mystery' novel and instantly fell in love with reading. Shortly after, she started writing in a journal. She wrote romance type stories, reflecting what she thought her life would be like when she grew up. After obtaining her degree, she married and raised her children in Long Island, New York. Presently, she has started to write again and recently self-published her first romance short story, 'Family Matters Most.' Her story is about an interracial couple and the challenge they are faced with when they tell her parents of their plans for the future. She currently resides in Pennsylvania with her family and is working on her full-length romance novel and more short stories. 


The evening includes an open mic segment which welcomes those who wish to share original stories, ballads and odes.
