“It would be an exotic moment
without rush”

~from “Keeping Quiet,” by Pablo Neruda

 
Join us for a collaboration of the arts—visual, musical, and spoken word—coinciding with Julie Shelton Snyder’s show of mokuhanga woodblock prints, “now we will count to twelve,” in The Gallery at W83. The Center for Faith & Work’s Redeemer Writers Group will present original poetry accompanied by jazz violinist Elinor Speirs, and audience members will be given an opportunity to create poetry in response to the art during a wine reception. For free tickets, RSVP here.

Featured readers include Debra Ayis, Jennifer Bangs, Lyonel Laverde, Stephanie Nikolopoulos, Louiza Patsis, Rachel Printy, Lancelot Schaubert, Cristina Spataro, Ellen Stedfeld, Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond, and Amelia Thompson. 

The Redeemer Writers Group crafts words so that they might be light in a dark space, wildflowers breaking through cracks in the pavement, water to thirsty souls. We have been meeting monthly for close to a decade to seek the flourishing of New York City. We hold discussions, critiques, readings, and conferences.
