14 St Y Virtual Mic Check

NY Writers Coalition (NYWC) is hosting a virtual open mic night on Friday, April 30, from 7 – 8:30 pm EST.

This open mic event will feature writers from our groups at the 14th Street Y, reading work from their latest publication. Workshop leaders Elena Schwolsky and Rhonda Zangwill will introduce their respective 14th St. Y groups; celebrated poet Jon Sands will be our MC for the night.

In our Mic Check events, workshop participants and leaders will have the chance to share what they’ve written with the public.
NY Writers Coalition work amplifies the voices of historically unheard and under-resourced individuals in our society; we welcome people of all backgrounds into our free virtual creative writing workshops. No writing experience is necessary, and writers of all levels of experience are welcome. In each workshop, participants write a piece in response to optional prompts provided by the workshop leader. NYWC’s workshops are based on the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method developed by Pat Schneider and are led by an experienced, trained workshop leader.
