Get Nervous is a reading and performance series for folks with neuroses; anxiety, depression, that voice inside you saying you can’t. Get Nervous thinks you can. And we’re here to help you do it.

We’re looking for pieces or performances that are about anxiety and depression. They can be funny, serious, sad, basically any story that is about your particular experience.

We know this takes a lot of courage. That is why the name of this series is Get Nervous. You might already be nervous. You might get nervous the night of. Get Nervous is a space where that is okay, but where we will not let it stop us.

The series is organized by Ashley Brittner, a local writer, DJ, painter, and cackler, who has spent a lot of time letting nervousness prevent her from doing a thing. This is not one of those times.
