About PAINTED STORIES:
WSN Members (and other writers) are invited to submit either a piece of fiction or non-fiction for our next event in this series that can be read aloud in 10-15 minutes and serve as inspiration for an artist to paint behind them as they read.
Excerpts from longer, or previously published works, will also be considered.
HOW TO SUBMIT:
Those interested in participating must submit a clean as possible draft to: nevadawriters at gmail dot com. Please make the subject line: Painted Stories Submission.
In choosing what to submit, remember, a visually evocative piece will give our artist something to use as inspiration. However, merely describing a scene with pretty language won’t satisfy the audience very much.
A good story, even if it’s an excerpt or a short chapter from a longer work, should have a beginning, middle and end. Or at least, end on a compelling hook.
PAINTED STORIES at the Bootlegger Bistro, Sunday February 8, 2015
Our first Painted Stories event with artist Mike Davies was a lot of fun and got lots of attention. We were even featured on our local ABC affiliate on The Morning Blend talk show. Five authors read and Mike painted an incredible piece during each reading. All of his paintings sold out after the show.
