Open Writer’s Labs

August 29, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT


Both Open Writer’s Labs, in-person and online, are canceled for Aug 29.


Online Via Zoom

The workshop is facilitated by Kathy West. Kathy’s writing has appeared in Kenyon Review Online, Apalachee Review, Oxford Magazine, and elsewhere, and she has performed her personal stories on stage in a variety of storytelling venues. As co-founder of minetotell.com, Kathy helps people overcome writer’s block. Drawing on a dozen years of experience giving feedback to writers, she aims to help you feel encouraged and confident about your work.

In-Person at Gemini Ink

We are working on our official public announcement; however, we wanted you to be the first to know that after approximately 25 years of volunteer service to Gemini Ink’s Open Writer’s Lab, Dario Beniquez has retired from facilitating this Lab! We will sorely miss his presence, but we are hopeful that our community of writers will continue to participate and grow with us.

Currently, you are welcome to join our in-person Open Writer’s Lab with Robert Allen at Gemini Ink’s office, 1111 Navarro St., San Antonio, TX 78205. There is free parking behind the building.

Robert Allen has worked as a librarian and an electrical contractor for most of his life. Many moons ago, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from the University of Texas at Austin where he studied poetry under David Wevill. Allen has been active in local writer’s groups and open mics including the Sun Poets Society. He’s been published in The Ocotillo Review, the Texas Poetry CalendarVoices de la Luna, di-verse-city, the San Antonio Express-News, and Poetry on the Move. In 2006, he started attending Gemini Ink’s free Monday night writing classes and has attended pretty regularly ever since. With more than a decade of attending writers’ groups, classes, and open mics, he now co-facilitates Gemini Ink’s Open Writer’s Lab.
