Join us on Sunday, January 15, 2017, from 1-4 p.m. for a reading and organizing meeting for Writers Resist. We’re imagining an hour or so for organizing (with updates from Sarah Tyson on prison abolitionism and Denver Homeless Out Loud and others) and talking about community actions moving forward, and raising some money for a cause in solidarity—our original intention had been to contribute to the Standing Rock #noDAPL Water Protectors and that may yet be the decision, but it’s also open to other possibilities. A reading with some invited readers will follow, with an open mic as well.
Here is a link to the Writers Resist site :: http://www.writersresist.com. The site and the network of readings were started by Erin Belieu (and others) and there will be simultaneous readings around the country on January 15, including at Lighthouse here in Denver, immediately following our event, and we will be carpooling over for anyone interested.
