Writing Aloud Returns with Angel Nafis!

Join us as we come together and Write Aloud

Created by NY Writers Coalition in 2003, our Writing Aloud Reading Series is a free event that unites NYWC’s community of writers and activists with prominent literary figures to share prose, poetry, and other writings in safe and inspiring places. Here’s how it works:

  1. Listen and watch a performance by this March’s special guest writer, Angel Nafis
  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!

Thursday, March 21 at 5:30 PM at NYPL St. Agnes Library (444 Amsterdam Ave, Manhattan)

This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome to write and share in this safe space. Click here to share the event on facebook & invite others.
