2016 Themes: “Repeat, Repeat” and “In the City”

10 Feb

Syllable is bouncing into the new year with two great themes:

“Repeat, Repeat” on March 23rd

“In the City” on April 20th


Location: Hartford Prints! on Pratt Street in Hartford, CT.

Due date for submissions: 1 week prior to reading.

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.

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!

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.
