Holiday Party & Book Swap

December 16, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CST




Mingle with fellow writers and literary fans for this festive in-person gathering and help us celebrate the resilience of our writing community and the joy of words.

Featured readers include SA Poet Laureate Andrea Vocab Sanderson and Octavio Quintanilla. Other outstanding writers include our 2021 mentor, award-winning author and seasoned writing teacher Kurt Caswell (via Zoom), and Caswell’s prose mentees, Marisol Villalobos and Carson Frame–which means the audience will be among the first to hear original new material from these talented voices. We’re also featuring Sarah Colby, the facilitator of our Veterans Writing Collective, along with a dynamic veteran writer, Terri Harmon. The brilliant and funny Florinda Flores-Brown emcees.

Take your chance on winning a free writing workshop, a limited-edition signed frontexto by Octavio Quintanilla, or chapbook bundle in our raffle. Or swap a book!—we’ll have a table of giveaways which you can add to.

Wine, non-alcoholic beverages, coffee, and a selection of lite bites will be safely served. 

*Due to our small space, we are requesting vaccination cards or a photo of your card. We ask that attendees wear masks. We will also have extra masks on hand. Seating is limited to allow for adequate social distancing.
