I’ll be master of ceremonies at next Saturday’s “Celebration of Writing” at the Goodman South Madison Library. I hope if you’re in town you’ll stop by and enjoy the fellowship of fellow writers.
The fun begins at 1:00pm with your choice from three free writing workshops:
- “Making Memories Matter: Turning Memories into a Living Memoir” Explore the importance of historical, social and cultural contexts across the lifespan with Trini Stickle.
- How to Share Your Poetry Effectively with an Audience: A Workshop with Fabu, past Poet Laureate of Madison and author of three books of poetry.
- Creative Writing for Youth in 4th-8th Grades with Monica Wahlberg.
At 2pm, the Open Mic begins. Share your writing of any kind – poems, short stories, raps, editorials, essays, song lyrics, personal reflections or academic writing. Present your work in any language. All ages welcome at the podium so all shared material should be family-friendly. Each presenter will receive a flower.
Register to read your work at the podium for up to five minutes by calling 266-6395 or by stopping at the library.
2:00 p.m. Saturday, May 5
