Write your way across Shreveport Common in coffee galleries, parks, historic buildings and cemeteries—anywhere a small group can sit, write and share their work. Writing Marathons are all about writing in the moment, writing for the joy of it, and finding inspiration in the architecture, history, people, and places! Writers/participants will gather for a brief overview of the day and a continental breakfast at Central Artstation before setting out in small groups. Participants write about anything they want in any form they wish: memoir, fiction, reflections, essay, poetry, or quick descriptive impressions and share their writing with each other without criticism. The day will end with food and drink in a celebration at Central Artstation that evening.
This event is hosted by the Shreveport Regional Arts Council and Caddo Parish Poet Laureate Ashley Mace Havird.
Must be over the age of 15.
You must commit the full day to writing.
Registration is $25/participant before Monday, September 23rd, and the price will increase after that date.
