The goal of feedback is to invigorate the audience by inviting them into the writer’s creative development, while also providing the audience the opportunity to generate their own work. With community and communing in mind, this one-of-a-kind reading series aims to demystify the creative process and empower would-be writers, emerging writers or those who simply appreciate the written word, by flipping the script on the typical paradigm of a reading.
