Writing Aloud with April Ranger!

Now is the time to stand together and write aloud. 


Created by NY Writers Coalition in 2003, the Writing Aloud Reading Series unites NYWC’s community of writers and activists with some of the nation’s most prominent literary figures to share prose, poetry, and other writings in some of New York City’s most inspiring spaces. Here’s how it works: 

  1. Listen and watch a performance by our special guest writer, poet and playwright April Ranger!
  2. Receive a writing prompt from our guest writer.
  3. WRITE. 
  4. Hit the mic! if you want to. Feel free to just sit back and listen, too! 

Wednesday, October 18th @ 7:00 p.m. at The Brooklyn Commons (388 Atlantic Avenue)

This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome to write and share in this safe space.
