Wine & Words was a hit! Turn out was great, and everyone enjoyed the quality and entertainment of the stories, stage-plays and poetry that was shared. So much talent in our area! A big thanks to The Black Dog Arts Cafe’ for providing the venue and great food, drinks and service last night – as always!
When I conceived of Wine & Words, I was thinking it would be somewhat of a performance by FreeValley Publishing/FVP Books authors, but it was also billed as a Literary Open Mic, and I’m so glad it was. We met some more theater folks in our area, including some excellent writers who would like to chat more about the differences and similarities of stage and novel writing – which I’m sure will improve all of our crafts.
Since I brought and set up a small bookshop, co-ordinated the reading schedule and MC’d for the evening – as well as read twice – I did a much worse than usual job of taking photos to capture the event. I have images of only
a few of the dozen readers who made us laugh, spooked us, made us think and feel and swept us away to other times and places.
