National Writers Union (UAW Local 1981/AFL-CIO) Tucson Unit-a reading and open mic on Monday, May 15, 2017

 

National Writers Union (UAW Local 1981/AFL-CIO) Tucson Unit-a reading and open mic on Monday, May 15, 2017
The National Writers Union will be hosting a reading and open mic on Monday, May 15, starting at 6:00 p.m. at 877 S. Alvernon Way. This month Jeanne Burrows-Johnson will be the featured reader. Jeanne will share some thoughts on the theme of “The Author Recycles: New Creations from Old Work.”  Drawing from her background in business, education, and the performing arts, Jeanne will examine how elements of a writer’s fiction and non-fiction can be reshaped into new material for publication via print, Internet, and broadcast venues.  She is the author of Prospect For Murder, the first title in a mystery series featuring the rich environs and multi-cultural history of Hawai`i. Jeanne is a graduate of the University of Hawaiʻi and a member of:  Phi Beta Kapa, Phi Alpha Theta, The National Writers Union, Sisters in Crime, and Arizona Mystery Writers.

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 temporary 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. The room is on the first floor and we will have signs up to point the way.
