Wed. Feb 20th: Love!

15 Feb

Let’s do it… let’s fall in love (or lust!).

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

Next up: Love on Wednesday, Feb 20th. 7 pm La Paloma Sabanera, $5 suggested donation.

A reprise of our most popular topic ever, we need your pieces about LOVE– romantic, familial, friendship, whatever. Stray as far from the subject as you see fit. Last year we had someone read her old diaries, and another person read a tremendous essay about her love for the nurse who brought her through cancer.

Writers: we need your pieces about love, whatever that means to you. Go bananas. Poetry, prose, sketches, skits, songs– every genre is fair game as long as you do your literary best.

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

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.
