Get Writing for “Beasts”

12 Dec

Our next installment of Syllable is just a week away– are you writing about your cats big and small for our “Beasts” night? Or perhaps your favorite X-Men character?



Be sure to get your submissions in by Saturday, December 15th so that we can put together the best possible night for you. Submit directly to

See you Wednesday the 19th!


What’s your favorite beast?

10 Dec

Whenever I think of the word “Beast,” the image of the Harpy from “The Last Unicorn” pops into my head.

Probably because it’s the scariest creature I saw on film when I was a child (well, her and the two rats from “Lady and the Tramp.”)


How about you? What pops to mind when you hear “beast”? And is that what you’re writing about for our reading  series on Wednesday, December 19th at La Paloma Sabanera?

Or, are you just coming to listen, and add all sorts of creatures to your list for dreams, nightmares, and inspirations?

Announcing this month’s theme: Beasts!




Mythological or magic, real or imagined– beasts of all kinds haunt us. Or at least me, anyway. We’re very excited about this theme and are hoping for a wide and exciting range of submissions. So get writing, RSVP on our facebook page, invite a friend, and prepare yourself for the very best Syllable Series of the year.

December 19th, 7:00 pm, $5 suggested donation, as always.
