The National Writers Union will be hosting a reading and open mic on Monday, February 20, starting at 6:00 p.m. at our new location at 877 S. Alvernon Way. This month Norah Booth will be the featured reader. Norah is a Tucson native who holds an MA in journalism from the U of A and has been publishing articles in magazines and newspapers as a freelance writer for most of her working life. She earned secondary teaching certification from Prescott College and taught writing in Sunnyside School District as well as teaching writing as adjunct faculty at Pima College. She is on the editorial board of the Occupied Tucson Citizen(occupiedtucsoncitizen.org). The environment, social justice, and music are topics that interest her and her recent articles were published by Poets & Writers, Edible Baja, and the Occupied Tucson Citizen. Norah will be reading from a sample chapter of a work in progress and will be discussing the process of creating a book proposal.
This will be followed by an open mic that is for spoken word only, but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!
The event will be held in our new location, the AFSCME/SEIU Union Hall at 877 S. Alvernon Way in Tucson. The building is on the east side of the street (opposite the Randolph Park golf range) and is a couple of blocks north of 22nd Street. There is ample parking and the room is on the second floor (elevator available).
