We’re doing another Word Swap this Friday, share your writing with other writers. We did it last month on a soggy night, this month, more! The idea is to bring a bunch of copies of your work (poem, short story, chapter, zine, article, essay, etc.) and take home copies of other people’s. Informal, and feedback optional. No workshop, no reading, no obligation! Friday, Nov. 20, 6:30-8:30pm, at Cha-cha’razzi! 1918 S. Bancroft st.

{November 9, 2009}   Open Studios

So, big news here… a few of us are packing up and out in the next month or two. That means, space available at Cha-cha’razzi! We’ll have about four spaces available starting December 1st. The studios are various in size and use, but it’s all flexible, as rent is split evenly. And, plenty of opportunities to use the space for events, shows, crits, gallery, etc. we function loosely collectively as a work and events space. email sarah.szy@gmail.com or brodyody@gmail.com if your interested, or come to one of our upcoming events!
