Carolyn Holland at Allegory Gallery...

This past Tuesday, we at Allegory Gallery were fortunate enough to welcome Carolyn Holland for the first Words in Process event of the season.  Carolyn did readings from her in-progress historically based novel, "Intertwined Love".  She also shared slides of places depicted in the book and passed out packets including word games.  It was a fascinating evening!

For the second half of the evening, several members of the audience shared pieces that they wrote, including Joe Stierheim, Amy Yanity, Joanne McGough, and Tom Beck.

If you haven't heard of Words in Process before, it's a reading series presented by poet, teacher and author, Amy Yanity.  The event takes place at Allegory Gallery on the second Tuesday of the month from 7PM to 9PM.  Each month, a new writer is featured.  They read some of their work and talk about what went into writing it.  The second half of the evening is an open mic and the audience is encouraged to talk about their writing processes.

Mark your calendars!  The next Words in Process event takes place on June 18th and will spotlight blogger, Melissa Firman.  Please join us if you are around!
