Bookmarks is a “series of group readings featuring writing that is grounded in personal experience” at The Arts Center of the Capital Region based here in Troy. The series is part of The Memoir Project, a program led by the great Marion Roach Smith.
Basically, people submit stories (<750 words), a curator makes selections and puts together an evening of readings w/Q&A in the black box theater space at The Arts Center. It’s another great opportunity to hone your voice, share a snippet of your experience, and bond with fellow humans.
I’m curating the Feb 3 Bookmarks event. (Yep, busy story week in February!) The submission DEADLINE is THIS WEDNESDAY, JAN. 8!
