Flyer by my amazing pal Mike Else!
I’m so excited to finally say this is a reality!
I’m throwing (and hosting) my first literary event which features reading AND live writing from all Queens writers… Did I mention it’s by the FIRE?! Literally – in the amazing, cozy carriage house at the back of LIC Bar, which has a lovely stone fireplace!
Here we go!
Audrey Dimola presents:
Nature of the Muse
a reading & live writing event
Sunday, January 27th
doors @ 6:30pm (event is 1hr & a half)
FIRESIDE at LIC Bar’s carriage house!
and now featuring special musical guest ACE ELIJAH!
At this cozy (indoor) fireside literary event, you’ll be treated to two sides of each local Queens writer’s talent: their traditional/polished poetry and prose work, but ALSO what they can churn out on the spot – yes, live writing!
You, the audience, will have the opportunity to contribute a writing prompt to the pool – each writer will receive a random prompt and have to write from it on the spot (as you would at a writing workshop), and present to the audience at the end.
Sound fun? Join us!

hosted by Audrey Dimola
(who will also be doing a prompt, to be fair!)
and with much thanks to Gus Rodriguez!
No cover – 1 drink minimum
PLEASE ALSO BE AWARE OF THE 7 TRAIN NOT RUNNING ON WEEKENDS BETWEEN QUEENSBORO PLAZA & TIMES SQUARE – PLAN ACCORDINGLY WITH MTA’S TRIP PLANNER!
**if you like the idea of multi-disciplinary collaboration, creative improvisation, or reading/performing your work in general at a future ‘Nature of the Muse’ event please email firstname.lastname@example.org (not limited to writers either – musicians, playwrights, actors, etc!)
I’d also like to take this opportunity to say how absolutely GRATEFUL I am to have gotten so much love and support for this event – thank you to everyone who is planning on attending, spreading the word, and of course writing articles! Please take a look, like them on FB, join their mailing lists, and get your local news from them: BORO, We Heart Astoria, LIC Spot, LIC Partnership, Discover Queens (who generously posted on Yelp and QueensNYC), as well as Eric Hathaway (forthcoming!) and Jeanmarie Evelly of DNAinfo.com who both interviewed me. Jeanmarie’s article, “Queens improv literary event to put local writers on the spot” (!!!) is HERE. THANK YOU!
