The Whirling World

Sunday, October 13, 2013 at 826LA
4 – 5:30 p.m.

“I turned silences and nights into words.
What was unutterable, I wrote down.
I made the whirling world stop.”
Arthur Rimbaud


Roar Shack is a collective of writers and artists, and over the coming months we’re going to bring you voices. Some of us come from fiction, some from memoir, some from poetry, and from music and performance and just about anything that leaves its own blood on the page. We want to bring you what you may not be getting much of. Won’t you join us?

Our next show is October 13, 2013 at 826 LA in Echo Park  (http://826la.org/) from 4-5:30 pm.

We dare you to miss this lineup:

Lisa Cheby

Justine Musk

Musical guest The Breaks

Live Write winner Ron Burch

Siel Ju

Kate Maruyama 

Rob Roberge

Live Write! A thrilling feat of writerly improvisation! As you arrive, you get to vote on a prompt. The winning prompt will be revealed to four intrepid authors – two of us and two of you audience types, onstage for all to see! We’ll all write to that prompt while our musical guest plays – it’s going to be impossible not to listen, but no one said this was going to be easy. Then the Live Writers will each read their just-written words, and the audience gets to vote! The winner will develop the work into a finished piece to be read at the next show.
