Sept 26: Breakthroughs!

24 Sep

Cloning sheep, apples hitting you on the head, Olympic records– breakthroughs come in a variety of fascinating packages, from personal to public. Tell us about yours in this month’s Syllable series!

An evening of writers reading original pieces– one of Hartford’s best little secrets.

Writers: we need your pieces about BREAKTHROUGHS, whatever that means to you. Go bananas.

Listeners: just come, listen, laugh at the funny parts.

Syllable takes literary submissions of all kinds. No reading will last longer than 10 minutes (about 4 prose pages), so your submission must stand alone in that time frame. Shorter submissions are very welcome. Submission guidelines:

Songs, diaries, plays, and creative interpretations of literature are welcome!

The mission of Syllable: A Reading Series is to provide a space for Connecticut writers of all levels to showcase their work, and to expose the public to a variety of writing styles. Syllable aims to be another brick in the strong arts community in the Greater Hartford area. This event is possible in part by a grant from the City of Hartford.
