Join us on November 4th at Works/SJ as part of First Friday’s Art Walk in downtown San José. The new gallery space is located at 38 South Second Street. We’ll have some readings from our beautiful new Anthology, substance’s to graze on, and various goings on. The readings will likely start around 7pm. More details to come. Be present! Come support your writer’s community!
Our October 19th’s FFF was held in Works/SJ’s brand new space on Second Street, downtown San José. We had a fun hybrid experience with some readers up at the podium and some on Zoom, projected up on the wall. We had a great Zoom audience, but we’re so happy we can give our Zoom readers real applause from the folks in the gallery; there’s nothing like the sound of laughter and clapping hands. As always, thanks to Joe Miller and Works/SJ for supporting our series.
AUTHORS & WORKS:
Paul Juhasz, “Row”
Douglas Trevor, excerpt from”The Detroit Frankfurt School Discussion Group.” published in Ploughshares Solo vol. 4
Niles Reddick, “”Who’s Going to Pray for Me Now?” published in Anti-Heroin Chic and again in Yellow Mama
Priscilla Thomas, “Red,” published in the Interstellar Lit Review
Thanks to all who helped make our May 11th reading series such a stellar event. Our hybrid Zoom/Gallery platform is proving to be a winner and a Covid-19 silver lining. It’s so great that our Zoom readers can hear an audience applause their work, and so fun for folks in the gallery to see readers projected up on the wall from all over the greater Bay Area, other States, and sometimes other countries. It truly is remarkable, and we have to thank Joe Miller of Works/SJ for providing this technology.
Filoli Gardens invited us up for the day to view the estate and then write some flash to read for their “Stories in Bloom” series. Our venue – the ballroom! We had great time and our readers were fabulous.
