Lit Crawl LA is back! This year’s event will be held downtown on Sunday, October 6 and several of our instructors will be reading.
At noon, you can find Elline Lipkin at It’s a Parkway, Not a Freeway at the Poetry Point at Chinatown Hub. (There’s one spot left in Elline’s fall workshop An Exploration of Poetry Methods and Movements.)
In this lively reading, the East Pasadena Poets poets will present fresh, new poems "round robin" style by each reading work that reflects Los Angeles' diverse community, interests, and particular talents, with special attention given to driving and urban travel.
Kim Young will be part of Kickin’ It With Kindness at 1:30 pm at the Fifth Street entrance of the Central Library. (There are two spots left in Kim’s fall workshop Translating Experience Into Art—A Generative Multi-Genre Workshop.)
Bring your sad, angry, happy—all your feelings—and throw them in a bucket, share your voice. Learn how to turn them into art and activism.
Sacha Howells will be one of the readers at LA Mixed Tape, an event hosted by PEN America featuring writing about music in LA. Find them at 3:30 pm in Meeting Room A of the Central Library. (Sacha is teaching Polish Your Prose online with Chris Daley in December.)
Six LA writers share short essays inspired by Los Angeles musical movements, including jazz, West Coast rap, Surf music, Chicano rock, grunge, and punk. Join for wild tour of Los Angeles sounds past and present with some of the city's most vibrant creators, and keep the party going with the PEN America Spotify playlist "LA Mixtape.”
