Fort Greene Summer Creative Writing Workshop

Looking for some mid-summer/mid-week/mid-day creative inspiration? I'll be leading a 4-week creative writing workshop in Brooklyn! Email me to register or for more info.
  • Wednesdays, noon-2 pm
  • July 16 - Aug 6
  • $120
  • 80 Hanson Place, Fort Greene, Brooklyn
  • Open to writers of all levels and genres
A relaxed, fun workshop to help you spark your creativity and get your pen moving again or for the first time.

This short, summer workshop might be just the thing for stay-at-home moms and dads, retired folks, students, or professionals working from home.

In my workshops, I create safe spaces where people can discover and develop their voices. It's a great method for beginning writers, experienced writers who are struggling with writer's block, or anyone who just wants time, space, and inspiration to generate new work.

Led in association with the NY Writers Coalition.

Agent 409 Reading
Monday, June 23rd @ 7PM - Free

It's been four amazing years, and yes, we're counting, 'cause it's time again for the writers at Agent 409 to scour racism, wipe away gritty capitalism, dissolve encrusted patriarchy, and penetrate transphobic spots. An unruly bunch of multi-racial queers and trannies, Agent 409 is anti-everything oppressive and wrong, and pro-everything liberating and good. Come hear the agents read their newest: Tamiko Beyer, Danielle Morgan Feris, Jane Koh, Adedoyin Ola, Cory Schmanke Parrish, Daniel Lynn Rose, Ronica Sanyal and Judy Yu.

Bluestockings is located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan at 172 Allen Street between Stanton and Rivington - 1 block south of Houston and 1st Avenue.
(1 block south of the F train's 2nd Avenue stop and just 5 blocks from the JMZ-line's Essex / Delancey Street stop.)
