Crown Heights Writes

Penina Roth did it again on Monday, bringing out a fantastic lineup of writers for her monthly Franklin Park Reading Series. Almost as impressive as those on stage were those in the crowd, a gang of NYC literati that included former FP readers Hannah Tinti and Teddy Wayne. Improbably but undeniably, Penina's show has become a destination for NYC authors and readers, and congratulations are in order!

Speaking of former FP readers, another alumna, Victoria Cho, is launching a Crown Heights Writing Workshop at LaunchPad! More information below:

Crown Heights Writing Workshop

Crown Heights' very first writing workshop is for any writer, professional or blossoming, interested in receiving additional feedback on his or her work.

The workshop will address short fiction pieces and meet weekly at LaunchPad community center (721 Franklin Ave.) on a weekday evening. The exact day and time will be determined based on participants' availability.

Please be able to commit for the entire duration (approximately 6 - 8 weeks). We expect to begin the first session in the next few weeks. Prior workshop experience is not necessary.

The workshop will be free!

Please e-mail Victoria at CrownHeightsWritingWorkshop[at]gmail[dot]com for more information.
