Morris Park LibraryStarting Monday, October 15, I am the Bronx Council on the Arts Artist in Residence at the Morris Park Library in the Bronx. Which means that on Monday afternoons, I run the Bronx Write Now series of free creative writing workshops for the literarily inclined.

A description of the series:
“Have a story you want to tell and not sure how to start? Or how to finish? Curious about the craft of fiction or poetry? Whether you’re on a a draft, are looking for ways to improve your manuscript, or have never written before, this workshop series is for you . . . .

“The Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) is a pioneering advocate for cultural equality and has a long history of supporting writers throughout the borough through multiple creative writing programs. The BCA nurtures the development of a diverse array of artists and arts organizations and builds strong cultural connections in and beyond the Bronx.”

The first session was last week, and I have to say everyone who showed up was eager and interested. I think we have a fantastic group already, but you can drop in and join for one session or as many as you like. Maybe I’ll see you there!
