Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by Citi Performing Arts Center, ArtWeek is an award-winning bi-annual creative festival featuring more than 100 unique, unexpected, and creative experiences that are participatory, interactive, or offer behind-the-scenes access to artists or the creative process. Born in Boston, ArtWeek has grown so rapidly since its 2013 launch that it now serves communities throughout all of Eastern Massachusetts.
On May 5, 2016 between 4 and 8 PM, Boston area residents are encouraged to visit Writers at Work in the professional workspace of The Writers’ Room of Boston located on the 5th Floor of 111 State Street in the Financial District. Themed booths throughout the writing space will allow visitors to Ask a Poet or Novelist or Memoirist, among other genres, their own questions—both practical and creative—about life in the literary arts. Our own writers’ work will be displayed and read aloud. Visitors will be invited to craft and share their own creative responses to fun writing prompts and can display their own work alongside ours. Stop by and say hello—you can find me in the Short Story booth.
