Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts engages writers and readers in a variety of ways!
The second Friday evening of each month at 7:30 pm, Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts hosts a free reading series. The 2018 Reading Series Curator is Janna Knittel. These readings take place at BLCA and are free to attend. The reading series is made possible through a partnership with Anoka Library and is funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Art and Cultural Heritage Fund.
Practice Writing Group
Each Tuesday, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, a group of writers come together at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts for a facilitated time to exercise the act of writing. Prompts are provided; this format is perfect for any type of writer and any ability. Practice Writing is also offered on the second Thursday evening of the month from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. All sessions are free to attend and participate. No sign up needed; just stop on by.
The NorthWords Writers meet together monthly to critique each other’s work. The meetings are facilitated by our Writer-in-Residence. NorthWords meets on the fourth Saturday of the month from 10 am to 12 pm. Interested writers can attend the group once without being a member of Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts. Questions about the group can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
