About Writing Aloud reading series

The Writing Aloud reading series presents writers from the NYWC community reading alongside established and emerging writers. The reading takes place at The Prince George Tea Room, a French-inspired beautifully restored tea room. Complimentary tea service is provided to all audience members. All proceeds benefit NYWC’s creative writing programs. Past featured readers include Darin Strauss, Joan Larkin, Mary Morris, Frederic Tuten, Lauren Sanders, Wendy Wisner, Lydia Cortes and Joshua Beckman.


NYWC was founded in April 2001 to provide free creative writing workshops to people from groups historically deprived of voice in society. NYWC is one of the largest community writing organizations in the country. In 2004, NYWC operated over 250 workshop sessions at 15 different sites. NYWC's workshop members include residents of supportive housing, people with HIV/AIDS, adults with mental illness, people affected by cancer, domestic abuse survivors, retired adults and economically disadvantaged youth and teens. NYWC also holds public readings by and publishes the writing of its workshop participants, and operates the online literary journal Plum Biscuit, edited by members of NYWC’s workshops. Most importantly, NYWC’s writers are being heard. Workshop members have had poems, stories and plays published and performed. Others have read their writing on NPR's All Things Considered, WNYC's Brian Lehrer Show and WBAI's Global Movements, Urban Struggles.
