Come Hear Stories & Poems from Friends and Neighbors

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
For two years, our friends and neighbors have submitted heartfelt and often poignant stories and poems to Community Writes, a program of the Hoffman Center for the Arts. The Hoffman Center would now like to share that work more broadly and is hosting a Community Writes Open Mic event Saturday, March 18, from 4 – 5:30 p.m. Join us and support our flourishing community of writers. Admission is free, but please register at:
If you’ve never contributed to Community Writes, now’s the time! We’ve kicked off 2023 with a call for submissions on the theme “Scarlet.” Use your imagination. Do your thoughts run to a show-stopping shade of red? A fevered love affair? The Scarlet Letter, perhaps? Scarlet Fever? Send your fiction, essay, memoir or poetry about Scarlet. No more than 800 words please — and include an image if possible. Visit for more information or to check our previous submissions.
