Event Spotlight: Make Readings Work for You

If you're a writer who needs a little help getting your work out to the people, the Uptown Writers Space might have the perfect workshop for you. Saturday's "Make Readings Work for You" focuses on teaching you the essentials of public reading, a skill necessary for all writers wishing to build their audience. The workshop is a bit pricey at $70 for members and $75 for non-members, but the money will likely be worth it. Taught by performer and author Marianna Swallow. Call 312-391-8554 for more information.
