Queens Poets/Writers Experiment in Live Audience Response Event at LIC Bar on January 30th


    Wordsmiths, sharpen your pencils! On January 30th, Queens writers will gather by the fireplace at the LIC Bar carriage house to read their works and then compete in a unique, interactive exercise that combines spontaneity with literature. Dubbed “Nature of the Muse” and organized by Western Queens poet extraordinaire Audrey Dimola, the contestants — John “Chance” Acevedo, Jeff LaGreca, Malini Singh McDonald, Devin Doyle and M. Leona Godin — will write live responses to random prompts from the audience. It’s an exploration of inspiration; the juxtaposition between the work writers produce on their own time and what they do in almost no time. Musical, multi-disciplinary creative types Tyler Rivenbark and Thomas Graff will perform at other moments.

    Details: Nature of the Muse, LIC Bar, 45-58 Vernon Boulevard, Long Island City, January 30th, 7:30 pm, no cover, but attendees are encouraged to buy at least one drink.
