In Progress:

The Bronx Writers' Center Workshops

at the Future Headquarters of the Bronx Council on the Arts

A Series of Free Workshops and Events for Writers

 Monday, January 28, 2013

6:30-8:00pm Speed Writing:  Start the New Year by taking a bold brave new step - writing and sharing your work with other Bronx writers. In this unusual workshop, writers will respond to short prompts and share them one-on-one and in small groups.  This is an opportunity to write and to meet other like-minded literary types. 

8:00-8:30pm Open Mic: Perform your work! (2 minutes per reader.) Not everyone has to stand and read, but anyone who wants to is welcomed to claim their voice!

Maria Romano, Director of the Bronx Writers Center, writer and teacher, will lead this workshop.

All welcome! Bring a notebook, a pen and your creative energy.
