Workshop for 2019 The Polk Street Review
Oct 13, 2-3p.m.
Logan Street Sanctuary
FREE donations welcome
On Second Saturdays from August through December from 2-3pm, we welcome writers, artists, and musicians to workshops for their submissions to the 2019 edition of The Polk Street Review! Saturday August 11th, the workshop will focus on helping participants get started on their submissions by discussing ways the 2019 edition’s theme can be expressed in prose, poetry, art, and song. Genre- and medium-specific ideas and guidelines will be provided.
Saturday September 8th , we will focus on poetry and song lyrics.
Saturday October 13th, we will focus on art and photography ~ we may have a photography walking tour, weather permitting!
Saturday November 10th , we will focus on prose writing (diverse genres).
Saturday December 8th , we will continue working on submissions, reviewing and finalizing drafts, with an eye towards the submission deadline of Dec 31, 2018.
Our TPSR theme for 2019 is, “If I Only Knew Then What I Know Now . . .” (think: looking back; lessons learned; not everything is black or white, etc). This theme will bring in some great prose, images, song lyrics and poetry submissions. Ribbon Prizes are awarded at our annual book launch in February for our Merit Award (Best in Book), and 1st Place, 2nd Place, 3rd Place, and (2) Honorable Mentions in our three categories (prose, poetry/song lyrics, images). The complete “all-in-one” guidelines and entry form document can be downloaded from our website. The public is also welcome to join us for our Sunday & Thursdays Writers Group to work on your submissions (it isn’t just for writers ~ artists may bring their art supplies to work on their submission creations).
