The Barnes & Noble Teen Writing Workshop is ongoing but always welcoming new members. I teach a writing technique at the start of the workshop, we all work with it, and then we share. There aren't any age restrictions; come one come all and it's FREE!

Due to an existing event the Friday before, this event is on Wednesday night instead of Friday night. Thanks! Don't miss it!

P.E.E.L. Reading Series

P.E.E.L. is a new reading series with a home base at Stain bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, every second Thursday of the month. Readings run under an hour, and feature 4 writers- one each presenting a few poems, an essay, an excerpt of something longer they are working on, and a letter. The idea is to present new writing in short jolts instead of longer, drawn-out ordeals.

I'll be reading a letter.

The whole show will be available for six weeks after the air date at www.piratecatradio.com.

Following that, MY INTERVIEW ONLY will be available at www.drinkswithtony.com until the end of time!
