There is an open reading this Friday, (and every third Friday) at 7:30, at the River Gallery School, in Brattleboro.
Readers have about 7 minutes to read either prose or poetry. Most people choose to read their own work, but some read or recite a piece by an author they found inspiring.
The open reading is organized by Write Action, a non-profit dedicated to writing and writers in the southeastern Vermont and southwestern New Hampshire.

SAXTONS RIVER, Vt. – What do you do when someone gives you a Steinway piano? You enlist some of the area’s finest musicians to play it.
And that is just what Main Street Arts will do in a three-part series of concerts beginning Sunday, Apr. 9 at 3 p.m. when Hugh Keelan and Ken Olsson will share the piano bench in four- hand harmony.
They will be followed Sunday, Apr. 23 when Keelan will be joined by Gudrun Weeks on violin, Peggy Spencer, viola, Pedro Pereira, cello, and Doug Cox, bass, for a performance of Schubert’s Trout Quintet.
Last in the series is Sunday, May 21, when Keelan and four-time Grammy winner Eugene Friesen will perform piano and cello magic.
This workshop is about learning to put on your canvas or paper only what you choose to be there in a very deliberate and conscious way. This requires a slowing down, learning how to really see what you are wanting to paint, and never dabbing at it when you are thinking about what you wish to do next. Every stroke counts! Often referred to, with a smile, as a "Birdsall’s Boot Camp."
What are you doing tonight? Nothing special, right? Come on down to 118 Elliot and have a night out.
