Share stories, find community this week and beyond

In this bleak weather and/or bleak world, it’s a good time to find community and create art. Here are some ways to come together (or… squirrel yourself away alone with your creative despair) to create and share stories and art this week:

As Community:

LONG STORY SHORT: Just Lust

Long Story Short is our improv, open-mic style storytelling show. Got a story? Come tell it. No notes, 5 minutes, anyone can sign up. The best approach is to think about how you’d tell your friends the story. And suddenly, a room full of strangers become your friends and hear your secrets.

VAMP: Law and Disorder

It’s our first VAMP of 2017 and what better way to say goodbye to 2016 and ring in a new era with stories of obedience and disobedience, law and lawlessness, and everything in between? And what happens when the good guys snap and the bad guys save the day? Sometimes law and order save us and sometimes they ruin lives, and sometimes it’s all just terribly embarrassing.

Featuring:
Ari Honarvar, Chris Onderdonk, Ed Farragut, Krisa Bruemmer, Lauren Cusitello, Liam James, and Ryan Hicks

The Greenroom Writing Workshop

In keeping with the stereotype that writers thrive on depression (not true, we thrive on wine and puppies), we encourage you all to embrace our specious June gloom and join us for a session of free writing, which appropriately enough is free for your wallet also.

The Greenroom Writing Workshop

After a brief hiatus, The Greenroom Writing Workshop is back and ready to get your pen moving! Join us at our new first Monday of the month location at Better Buzz Coffee on Monday, June 2nd at 6:30pm with group leader Marion Wilson and we dare you not to get something on the page that tickles you. Always free, because we’re a collective of writers, and therefore not good at making money.
