Salon No. 9: Age with Glynnis MacNicol


When: Tuesday, July 24

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.


We’ll eat, drink, listen, and share, with sips and snacks provided courtesy of our friends at Winc (use the special code NOVELLA for a sweet discount) & Caroline Schiff!

Space is limited—RSVP* here but remember that when you do, you’re committing to attending and writing an original piece. Please click wisely - your RSVP takes up a seat and we need those!
