Poetry Night @ Café Zata
Café Zata, 5047 Forest Hill Ave., RVA 23225
Friday January 27, 7pm
We're back for another year of poetic amazingness at Zata! Both new and veteran performers are always welcome (and it's our only open mic reading event this month)!
Zata's selection of beer, cider & wine plus an expanded dinner and snack menu make it easy to settle in for a couple hours' great word. A fantastic place to meet old friends & hear new voices, our poetry open mic is an awesome spot to get inspired and get heard!
Freewrite Tuesdays at Sub Rosa
Sub Rosa Bakery, 620 N. 25th St., RVA 23223
1st & 3rd Tuesdays, 10:30-11:30am-ish
Looking for an excuse to to get out of the house and hang in a cozy coffee & pastry spot? We know just the place! Join us at Sub Rosa on January 17. (There is no freewrite on January 3rd, as SubRosa will still be closed for the holidays.)
Whatever your genre, this is a cool and informal venue to freewrite and feed off the creative energy around us and in each other-- we believe writing doesn't always have to be done at a lonely desk or secluded retreat. Although we're open to specialized topics and sharing, there is no formal critique or workshop agenda, and no RSVP required— simply show up ready to get those New Year's writing resolutions!
