My new favorite event series:
SOMArts Cultural Center presents Feast of Words: A Literary Potluck, a monthly event that is part social, part reading series, and part inspiration for writers and foodies alike. Co-hosted by Irina Zadov and Lex Leifheit, Feast of Words takes place on the first Tuesday of each month. Each month features short writing exercises, shared food and featured culinary and literary guests around a theme.
December’s writing theme is “Naughty or Nice” and features literary and culinary guests Simon Sheppard, and Azalina (of Azalina’s Malaysian), respectively. Feast of Words starts at 7:00pm on Tuesday, December 7th. Admission is $10 in advance at www.feastofwords.eventbrite.com, $5 with a potluck dish or $12 at the door. Space is limited to 60 writers, advance tickets are recommended.
December’s event will also include a quick-write competition of “naughty” and “nice” on-the-spot writing with special prizes for the winners!
