The debut reading event for the Night Writers Workshop was held Thursday, August 14th, at The Little Traveler in Geneva. The readings were great, the wine was great and the food by Chef David was wonderful.
Remember–no Waterline Writers in August. We’ll announce our fall schedule and call for submissions next week.
If you’ve missed us this summer, watch one of the 160 readings on our Video Library. It’s a great way to enjoy a few minutes of diverse fiction, poetry, spoken word, etc. Here’s one to get you started. It’s Mary Hutchings Reed reading from her novel Warming Up, runner-up for the 2011 William Wisdom–William Faulkner Award for an Unpublished Novel and 2013 Honorable Mention in the Writers Digest Self-Published Books Award. It is available on Amazon and Kindle, B&N, Women & Children First, She Writes Press and locally in the lobby of Steel Beam Theatre.
You could also attend or read at an open mic like Paul LaTour’s Lit By The Bridge in Aurora on August 21st or Frank Rutledge’s Harmonious Howl in Geneva on August 28th. Or join a writers group: click here for our long list! Or come to one of three monthly West Suburban Wordplays or to Lit Lab 51. Or sign up for a fall art class at Water Street Studios. Or just sit down and write!
