Our first week of workshops in the new space is behind us. I hope it’s been a good one for you. We’ve posted all our workshops for the month of May, so please go forth and reserve your seat at your workshop(s) of choice.
As we get settled in at our new space, please do let us know if you encounter a problem. If you’ve got an idea about how we can/should use it, send that idea, too. We’ve always been driven forward by your ideas.
Speaking of your ideas: last year, you told us in the BWW survey that you’d like us to hold more panel discussions on writing-related topics. We’re cooking up a new one for Saturday, June 18th, so mark your calendars. (We’ve even got an idea for it! But it’s a surprise–at least until we can nail down panelists.)
But that’s June, which feels so far away. This week is upon us, so here are this week’s opportunities and announcements.
You’re now free to RSVP to workshops happening in May.
We’re looking for someone who can volunteer their photography skills for the night of the launch of The Best of the Burlington Writers Workshop 2016 (Friday, April 29th 6-9:30 p.m. at Burlington City Arts). If you’ve got a fancy camera and know how to use it, please do let me know if you’d be willing to take mucho photos for us. Remember: If you’re a professional photographer, you can donate your services and get a tax-deduction letter from the BWW, your favorite 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Congrats to Cynthia Close for the publication of her review, “Les Blank’s Visions of Oklahoma: ‘A Poem Is a Naked Person’ Now on BluRay.”
Congrats to Liz Cantrell for the publication of this music review in Seven Days.
Congrats to Anne Averyt for the publication of her poetry chapbook, Autumn’s Yard, by Finishing Line Press.
My conversation with New Hampshire poet Jennifer Militello is the most recent installation of The Bookshelf from NHPR.
If you think you’ll attend the launch of Best of 2016, please RSVP on meetup.com. This will help us keep an accurate count of who is coming and plan for enough food.
