Book Suey: WRITER'S WORKSHOP

During Book Suey regular hours, learn more about the upcoming writer’s workshop hosted by Member-Owner Reynaldo Hinojosa Jr.— He’s looking to create an environment that explores the fundamental spirit of good writing.

————-

Have a passion for writing? Want to explore your unique style and grow as an author, poet, screenwriter or songwriter? Then let's talk. Writer/Book Suey Member-Owner Reynaldo Hinojosa Jr. is looking to create an environment that explores the fundamental spirit of good writing. Having recently received his Master's in Creative Writing from the University of Texas at El Paso, Reynaldo wants to share his experience, knowledge and love of writing with those seeking to expand their abilities as wordsmiths. This is a preliminary gathering to meet with Reynaldo and discuss what you as a writer are looking for and what goals you have for writing. From there, he will discuss ideas for the workshop and schedule a several week block in which you will commit to, participate and have your work critiqued by peers. This is an opportunity to dive into that hobby a bit more, or hop over that wall that's put a halt to your work, or possibly see if you want to pursue the craft as a serious profession. This will be an informal meeting to determine if this is something you want to commit to.

CIVIC ARTS: SELF v. WHOLE? (NOTE NEW DATE!)

In community building, arts work, and life, there are lots of contradictions. Sometimes these seem especially prominent when you realize you are both an individual and a part of a greater whole. How do we take care of ourselves, but also our neighbors, our communities, the cities where we live... the world.  We’ll have a facilitated exercise exploring how we can “move from the overlaps.” Inspired by @vent_diagrams!!

CIVIC ARTS: HOME

What happens when residential homes become spaces for art? How does this impact the neighborhood? How is this different (or the same) in South Africa v.  the U.S.? Join us for a discussion between Palesa & Siphiwe Ngwenya (Maboneng Township Arts Experience, South Africa) and Gina Reichert & Mitch Cope (Power House Productions, Detroit) to explore what it means to build community at the neighborhood scale through home housed art and performance.
