A community of gratitude

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to curate and host an event that brought together some of the most talented artists and organizers in the Queens literary community. The QUEENS LITERARY TOWN HALL is a night I will never forget, and now there are lots of photos and a video of highlights featuring ALL the performers and presenters:

First Tuesdays Reading Series & Open Mic
Enigma Bookstore
Newtown Literary Journal
Oh, Bernice! Reading Series
REZ Reading Series / Richmond Hill Library Readings
Boundless Tales Reading Series
Five Boro Story Project / Art, Food & Soul
Astoria Bookshop
Canvas of Words
Heightening Stories
Poetry Teachers NYC
Mindful Writing with Emily Herzlin
Mission to dit(Mars)
Nature of the Muse reading & live writing

All of these individuals and organizers are from all over Queens – Kew Gardens, Jackson Heights, Astoria, Jamaica, and more – and if you’d like to see what’s in store for the Queens lit community in the coming months and who is working hard to promote and support it, please check these people out! I am lucky to know all of them, and every single person who helped promote the event and joined us to celebrate that night.

Forward, always –
