I love the weeks that cover the gamut of literary events. Want to read at an open mic? Charis' Cliterati Open No-mic has you covered. Want to workshop your most recent story? Writing with Intent and the Writer's Exchange meet this week. Want to watch local authors bout it out? Write Club Atlanta takes the stage at the Highland Ballroom on Wednesday. Got some cash burning a hole in your pocket? There's a sale at Little Shop of Stories. No matter what day of the week it is, or what you're in the mood for, the written word awaits you this week.
Open to fiction, poetry, and non-fiction writers alike- Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Program's facilitated group is tailored for serious writers looking for a literary workshop to shape-up their work and keep them focused. Suggested donation of $5.
A unique writing workshop- writers of all genres are invited to share ten minutes of their work aloud with a supportive community of authors who will provide constructive feedback for five minutes.
Another rowdy evening of literary debates will storm the Highland Ballroom this Wednesday evening. Bear witness to seven minute bouts between local writers such as Michael Molina, Lauren Traetto, and Nicole Isaac over antithetical subjects such as asleep and awake, light and dark, and the infamous fire and ice.
Pay what you can at the door, $10-$20
It's the third Thursday of January- you know what that means. Karen G and Theresa Davis take the stage at Charis Books for an open mic night, sans microphone. Writers of every focus as well as musicians can share the stage with this month's featured performer Mariana McDonald. Suggested donation $5.
Were you denied the joy of a book this past holiday season? Had your eye on a specific title for some time but haven't gotten around to picking it up? A selection of books, toys, and games will be on sale for 30% over the weekend at Little Shop of Stories. Treat yourself.
