A Literary Revival

San Francisco's independent literary culture is on the rise.  Open mic nights around the city give writers the opportunity to share their talents with all San Franciscans.  One such venue is at the Portuguese Artist Colony, where writers are given 10 minutes to write a short story on a given topic.  

This is one aspect of SF that I really enjoy.  Independent creative minds gather here to create the next artistic and literary wave.  It is unique to our city, and something that we must foster.
