Snow Day Surprise: RSVP to Salon No. 6!

 

Nor'easter who? Welcome to the perfect answer to yet another week of temperatures below 65 degrees: a salon! Salon No. 6 to be exact. We'd like to think Novella will be the harbinger of springtime joy so scroll down for the prompt we'll be writing on this April, where you'll find us, and how to share your piece with us all next month.


“Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.” -Maya Angelou

Your Inspiration for April

 

RSVP for RICH

 

This April, we are gathering at Lou & Grey once again to think around the theme "rich". As always, we invite you to respond to the prompt literally and figuratively: from the feeling of getting your first paycheck to the impact an international trip had on your worldview to the passed-down recipe of your family's sauce. We want to know: what does "rich" 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. 

Out of town? Not in NYC? Don't forget to join Women of Novella, our Facebook community for writerly women everywhere.
