The Launch of Charlotte Lit

Charlotte LitThis weekend, celebrate the launch of the newest member of Charlotte’s arts community, Charlotte Lit:

Our mission is to promote a deeper understanding of self, community, and world by inspiring and educating readers, developing and supporting writers, and promoting creative, arts-focused conversations that strengthen and transform our community.

On Friday, February 19, at 7:00 pm, Charlotte Lit hosts a launch party that includes an interactive poetry exploration, a conversation with poet Linda Pastan, and a reading by the author. The event is free, but tickets are required.

Charlotte Lit will host Wednesday Write-Ins on the first and third Wednesdays, where writers are invited to gather at Charlotte Lit’s comfy Plaza-Midwood location for quiet writing time (two hours), followed by a group writing chat (thirty minutes).

They will also host a Third Friday Reading Series that will feature two readers plus an Open Mic. This event is hosted by M. Scott Douglass of Main Street Rag and Jonathan K. Rice of Iodine Poetry Journal. Additional upcoming events include workshops, salons, and book conversations.
