Authors Vida Cross, Lynne Handy, Wayne E. Johnson, Kurt Luchs and Chris Reid will be featured at the next Waterline Writers event on Sunday, November 19th at 7 pm.

You don’t have to be a writer to enjoy Vida Cross’s poetry from Bronzeville at Night: 1949, inspired by the paintings of Archibald J. Motley, Jr., or to catch Lynne Handy’s fascinating characters, about to slip from the brink of Where The River Runs Deep’s first chapter. And don’t let the title fool you, not all of Wayne E. Johnson’s GI escapades are Rated G in The Militarized Zone: What Did You Do In The Army, Grandpa? Humor writer Kurt Luchs shares a couple of cathartic letters from hell – and from It’s Funny Until Someone Loses an Eye (Then It’s Really Funny). And Chris Reid’s spoken word poems speak to all, but we’re betting writers will especially love them!

Admission is $5/$3 students. You’ll have the opportunity to purchase an author’s book, beer from Solemn Oath Brewery, wine from Bright Angel Wines, a hand-tooled pen from Wooden Writers or a hand-constructed book from Tieri Ton. We also offer food from The Market at Gaetano’s and desserts from Limestone Coffee & Tea!

Everyone is welcome! Writers may bring a 5-minute piece to share at our 8:30 Open Mic or visit and follow the Submission Guidelines to be considered as a future featured writer. Waterline Writers, 3rd Sundays at 7 pm, September to May, in the art gallery at Water Street Studios 160 S. Water Street, Batavia IL. Find us on Facebook or Twitter. Contact us at
