To celebrate all of our applicants to the Jane Hoppen LGBT+ Residency, Paragraph is hosting an open house and happy hour on Friday, November 16. All applicants who applied to the residency are welcome to show up anytime from 10:30am-6pm for free access to our Williamsburg space to write for the day. The open house will be followed by a happy hour from 6-8pm in our Williamsburg space (84 Withers Street) cafe area to mix, mingle, and discuss writing with other LGBT+ writers, while enjoying free wine.
We were honored to receive so many amazing applications, and hope to foster a space to host more free events geared toward LGBT+ writers. We will discuss potential meetups ideas during the happy hour on November 16. Potential future events include, but are not limited to, happy hours, write-ins, craft/issue-based discussions, or workshops. We are open to any ideas for events, so bring your suggestions!
