What we're about

Wednesdays of Woe is a monthly event where we join with other creators to celebrate all that is magical, mysterious, and macabre! Part writing group, part open mic, part monster movie night, it's a guaranteed good time to get you into the spooky spirit!

The event starts with a timed writing session. Bring your stories, your screenplays, and your artwork where we will work on them in a series of 25-minute sprints, with time to socialize with your fellow darklings afterward!

From there, we'll be doing an open mic. Anyone can sign up to read their work or share a spooky short story or do whatever their dark little hearts desire.

Finally, we will end the evening with MACABRE MOVIE NIGHT, Bushwick's very own monster movie party. Hosted by some weirdo in a costume, these films showcase the best and brightest of new and classic horror cinema!

Basic ground rules:

No Bullies. This event is about fostering a creative community of macabre artists, and it doesn't work if people feel attacked in their work. Save the boo-ing and heckling for Thanksgiving with your racist uncle.

No Creeps. Don't be a creep. Pretty self explanatory.

Support local businesses. Precious Metal is very cool for letting us do this event for free, so buy a beer or soda or something.

No soliciting. While collaboration is always welcome, this is not the place to aggressively push your wares or hunt for free creative labor.

_____________________________________________________

Okay, now that we've scared away the worst potential party crashers, we welcome all you future Edgar Allan Poes, you Shirley Jacksons, you Victor LaValles, you Clive Barkers, you Laird Barrons, you Stephanie Wytoviches. Bring your dark side. There's a community waiting for you.
