Come and share your favorite poetry/blog/media/short prose. It can be yours or just something you liked off the Internet or even from a TV show. We will use prompts to encourage ideas for free-form writing or drawing, but will also welcome whose who wish to listen, make friends, and share anything they would like, so long as it is short. You may come with poems, art, other people's blogs, articles, or excerpts of prose that you would like to share. Even a YouTube video or movie clip you liked is also great.
You'll be encouraged to share any story, life experience, idea, or inspiration (when that exists, sometimes there's not) that encouraged your choice of media, artwork or writing. Feel free to pull it up on your laptop - wifi is free and available. Expect to gain new friendships and inspiration.
This event will be a “Speed-Dating” for novelists, story collections, poetry book writers, and narrative nonfiction is designed to bring like-minded book writers together who can offer one another encouragement, accountability, and feedback throughout the process of finishing their complete work.
This is also an event for NJ/NY Artists & Writers. It will be a social and fun monthly meetup, aimed at forming not only critique partners but a community of lasting creative friendships. Please come prepared with a writing project you aim to finish. There will be monthly meetings to check in on progress, read members’ drafts, etc.
We will have our first meeting at Trend Coffee in Montclair.
