WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU? : : NSWG Spring Reading
Short story, poetry, essay and memoir in short bursts. NorthSide Writers Group offers its spring reading on the theme What's the matter with you?" on Friday, May 15th beginning at 6:30p.
Guest writers from the Audubon Eight writers group have been invited to join NSWG for the event.
The writers of NSWG have been gathering monthly at Homewood Studios since 2001. They have published a chapbook of their work, The Truth of Myth, which will be available at the reading.
6:00 to 6:30 - food and conversation
6:30 to 8:00 - reading, including an open mike for anyone in the audience who wishes to read their own work or that of an admired writer
8:00 to 8:30 - more food and conversation.
Free and open. Bring a friend.
This reading, attended by over fifty people, was perhaps our most successful to date. The energy from the audience was high voltage all evening. The writers had each prepared something special in response to the theme. The quality of conversation after the reading, while we finished up the wine and goodies, reverberated with continuing thoughts and comments on that question, "What's the matter with you?"
