Writing Aloud Benefit for NYWC a huge success!

audience-for-benefit-reading-oct-2009Thanks to everyone who came out to hear our amazing workshop leaders read at the October 19th Writing Aloud Benefit for NYWC.  Leaders Matt Everett, Julia M. Morris, Derek Loosvelt, Idrissa Simmonds, Elizabeth Keenan, and Avra Wing read their poetry and prose to a large, enthusiastic crowd in the beautiful Great Room at South Oxford Space.  One of the many highlights:  Elizabeth Keenan read an incredibly moving letter from a participant in her group at Serendipity (a drug and alcohol treatment facility for women in Brooklyn) about how much the workshop meant to her. All funds raised at the event help support the NYWC’s workshops and publications for under served populations throughout NYC.

November 16th Writing Aloud continues as a free event!

Readers include author Elna Baker (Regional Morman Singles Halloween Dance), Kevin Townley, Julia Schaffer, Sarah Dohrmann, Dinah Adames.  Curated by Shaina Feinberg.
