Salon No. 9: Age with Glynnis MacNicol

RSVP

When: Tuesday, July 24
NEW TIME! 7:30PM-9PM

Where: Lou & Grey
138 5th Avenue
New York, NY 10011

What: We're thrilled to announce our ninth (and last of the summer!) salon at Lou & Grey Flatiron, where we'll be joined by Glynnis MacNicol, author of her debut memoir, No One Tells You This. Glynnis will be in conversation with Roxanne Fequiere, Novella's Editor-at-Large and co-host of The Wing's Book Club in Flatiron. Together, they will discuss Glynnis' experiences as a writer, the stories behind her memoir, and a personal interpretation of what "age" means to her.

As always, we invite you to respond to the prompt literally and figuratively: from the concept of milestones, to if age is really just a number, to how it impacts your view of the world. We want to know: what does "age" mean to you?
 
You may respond to the prompt in whichever literary method you please: song, poem, short story, script, etc. All we ask is that you keep your work limited to a maximum of 2 pages or 5-7 minutes spoken aloud. 

Also, you read correctly: this is Novella's last salon of the summer. We'll be taking a quick break in August and coming back big in September (which is coincidentally our one-year anniversary ...!)

NOT IN NYC? You're in luck. We'll be livestreaming from Instagram where we'll be taking questions for Glynnis from our members.

Salon No. 7: Birth

Salon No. 7: Birth

Salon No. 7: Birth

 

For the month of May, we thought about a lot of things. We thought about the cherry blossoms finally sprouting from the formerly barren trees in New York, we thought about Mother's Day being just around the corner, and how spring just feels like a new beginning, so "birth" felt right to us - and to our friend, Raven Ishak, Editorial Director of Chillhouse's digital relaxation destination, The Chill Times.

That's why she'll be sitting as this month's Selected Speaker! We are so excited for her to share her interpretation of the theme with you all.

As always, we invite you to respond to the prompt literally and figuratively: the onset of a new season, the kinship of a mother and daughter or found family, or how it feels to create something that is all your own. We want to know: what does "birth" mean to you?
 

You may respond to the prompt in whichever literary method you please: song, poem, short story, script, etc. All we ask is that you keep your work limited to a maximum of 2 pages or 5-7 minutes spoken aloud.
