Jeffrey McDaniel’s writing workshops take inside voices outside
Thirteen local writers from Jeffrey McDaniel’s Thursday night multi-genre writing workshop (and a couple of students from his one-day intensives) will come together on Friday, Dec. 7, at the Philipstown.info space at 69 Main St. to each read for six minutes, sharing new poems, short stories, letters, nonfiction essays, and novel excerpts.
This talented bunch includes, among others: a lawyer, a librarian, a high school student, an interior designer, a reporter, a high school English teacher, a homeschooling parent, an online marketer, a psychology associate, and a fine art printmaker. Readers include: Linda Lee Baird, Suzanne Bouchard, Tom Carrigan, Emma Cody-Kimmel, Elizabeth Hare, Lithgow Osborne, Alison Rooney, Greg Remillard, Christine Simek, Sarena Strauss, Sara Walsh, Beth Weintraub, and Phoebe Zinman.
McDaniel, a multi-honored poet who also teaches at Sarah Lawrence Collge, has read from his work frequently at the Chapel Restoration Sunset Reading Series. He calls this “a great chance to see and hear the voices inside the people you stand in line next to at Foodtown, or smile at by the river.”
The evening begins at 7:30 and is free, as are the accompanying wine, sparkling water and cheese. For more information, contact [email protected]
