Let The Blues Be Your Muse, May 20th!



(Submission deadline for Let The Blues Be Your Muse! was March 30th. Winners will be announced by April 22nd.)

A Waterline Writers special event, Let The Blues Be Your Muse! will be a blues-themed literary evening at 7 PM, Sunday May 20th 2018, at Water Street Studios and Kiss The Sky in Batavia, IL. It will include poetry, prose, essays, and other written creations that not only evoke or celebrate blues music, but also build on and play off each other to create a unique literary experience of the blues. And it will undoubtedly include live blues performances and jam sessions!

We’re excited to announce that Scott Tipping and Dave Nelson will help curate this event!

This collaboration with the Fox Valley Music Foundation, Kiss the Sky Records and Water Street Studios sets the stage for area blues events on:

June 8, 2018: Art of the Blues at Water Street Studios, Batavia IL (Deadline for art is May 1st.)

June 9, 2018:  Blues and Roots on Water Street, Batavia IL
