First Friday Pens and Pints Writing Bonanza
Jack & Tony’s Restaurant and Whisky Bar
Unwind and start your weekend right—with a pen and a happy-hour priced pint (or a shot of your favorite whiskey or maybe a delicious margarita). We’ll bring you writing prompts that will definitely spark comedic, sassy, lively, and some seriously side-splitting prose. Join Petals and Bones for what’s sure to be an evening of hazy-dazy creativity and plenty of lyrical tomfoolery.
Limited to 8 people, so sign up early!
$10-$25 sliding scale (plus yr drink monies)

Celebrate summer’s end and the move from light to dark with a day of writing and food! In this half-day creative writing workshop we will explore transition, change, and different aspects of death and dying. October 30th falls just before Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, and All Souls Day, and we will be finding non-religious inspiration from these different holidays in a way that promises to be celebratory, fun, and enlightening.
The ancient Celts believed that Samhain (the original Halloween) was a time when the border between the spirit world and this world became thin, an intriguing possibility that bodes well for some truly inspired writing. Let’s pull those skeletons from the closet and let them dance, calavera-style! Snacks will be provided (and maybe some Halloween candy!).
