Painted Stories II

Join four local authors and a special guest artist for an afternoon of story inspired art!

Authors will read 10-15 minute short stories, fiction and/or non-fiction excerpts of their work as our artist uses their words as inspiration to turn a blank canvas into a piece of art live in front of the audience.

When: Sunday, May 31st from 1-3PM

Where: The Writers Block (1020 Fremont Street across from Atomic Liquors)

Parking: Plenty of (free) street parking

Cost: Free for WSN members, $10 for non-members.

If you would like to be a reader, submit either a short story, piece of narrative non-fiction or excerpt from a longer work that can be read in 10-15 minutes. Keep in mind, your piece should have a limited number of settings and have a strong sense of character for our artist. It should also have at least some sense of a beginning, middle and end (or at least a hook!) to satisfy our listening audience.

Free to enter! Deadline for submissions is April 30th.

Selected authors will be notified in early May.
