Hidden: secrets, fears, history. Or, this reading series, hidden in the back of Hartford’s favorite letterpress shop, Hartford Prints! We’ll be in the back room– did you even know there was one?
Writers: we need your pieces inspired by the word “hidden,” whatever that means to you. Go bananas. Poetry, prose, sketches, skits, short plays, songs– every genre is fair game as long as you do your literary best.
Submissions are due on Wednesday, February 19. Get writing!
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: https://syllableseries.wordpress.com/submit/.
Songs, diaries, plays, and creative interpretations of literature are welcome!
This event is BYOB and has a suggested donation of $5.
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.
