Sip & Scribe @ WORD on #SmallBusinessSaturday

    11/25/2017 - 7:00pm

    This event takes place at our Brooklyn location.

    Come celebrate the conclusion of Small Business Saturday and get your creative brain moving! Are you looking for a refreshing way to mix-up your writing? Then push away from your keyboard, get ready to put pen to paper, and come mingle with other writers in person! Sip-N-Scribe is a fun evening of creative writing prompts, idea swapping, and drink-sipping. The goal is to experiment with something new on the page in an informal, relaxed way, all while enjoying an evening out with your friends while making new ones. Each session, Jenn Wehrung and Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons will present a new writing prompt, give it a fun twist, and encourage you to let your words flow! No one is here to write the next Great American novel. But hey, if that happens, please include us in the special thanks!

    Jenn Wehrung is a comic (Caroline's, Gotham, The Royal Hall For Cornwall and any number of holes in the wall), a burlesque songstress (The Slipper Room, The Mermaid Ball, PS 1, The Duplex and any number of karaoke bars) and sometimes just a regular writer/actor (HBO, FOX, The American Side, The NY Fringe Fest, Mortified, No, YOU Tell It!). She teaches theatre and writing to students K-12 with the Attic Salt Theatre Company, as well as the Young Writers Workshop at The Astoria Bookshop. She is the voice the mom in the audio book Jeremy Hatcher, Dragon Thatcher (Random House), which makes her cooler to her niece and nephew. Sip-n-Scribe with Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons may be the coolest "n" around and definitely her favorite writing class to co-teach!

    Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons is a writer, teacher, and storyteller. Her work has recently appeared in the anthology From Pantyhose to Spandex: Writers on the Job ReduxBlack Fox Literary MagazineNewtown LiteraryHippocampus Magazine, and Hypertext Magazine. She lives in Astoria and teaches a monthly drop-in creative writing workshop at The Astoria Bookshop the third Sunday of every month. After earning her MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Fairleigh Dickinson University, she created No, YOU Tell It!, a switched-up storytelling series with a twist: each NYTI participant develops their own story on the page and then flips scripts with a partner to present each other’s story on stage.
