The Writing Machine celebrates over a year of collaborative writing with readings, food, cocktails, and music in a relaxed, low-lit lounge atmosphere.
Developed as a directed collaborative by Cynthia Gray, the Writing Machine uses line and line/image exchange to engage with invited poets and artists. Writing Machine poets direct their poems, and artists contribute images, with Gray acting as a responder. Chuck Stebelton, Richard Fox, Stephanie Barber, Vincent Dermody and Douglas Piccinnini will be reading. Gray will read from poems written with Jen Hofer, Joseph Havel, Howie Good and Amina Cain. Small book projects with artists Dani Leventhal and Jibade-Khalil Huffman will also be released at this event.
Doors will open at 10PM for drinks and snacks and mingling, then the Writing Machine!
