Lost & Found (in person literary workshop)

May 26 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Lost & Found is a literary workshop designed to provide an opportunity for writers to read, review, and receive constructive criticism of their work, especially projects or pieces that are still works-in-progress or have hit a roadblock. Participants are required to bring one page (up to both sides) of material of any genre they’re working on to read aloud. Then, as a group, we workshop the piece—asking questions, providing feedback, offering solutions, and so on. The goal is to provide writers with a framework for creative development and a consistent network of feedback.

This will be the first of six sessions scheduled on alternating Sundays:

5/26, 6/9, 6/23, 7/14, 7/28, and 8/11

Please RSVP for the first session on May 26th at this link:

This event will take place in person at the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division, on the second floor (room 210) of The LGBT Community Center, 208 W. 13th St., NYC, 10011.
