Sunday, Jan 19th at 7 pm:Waterline Writers in the gallery at Water Street Studios at 160 S. Water St., Batavia. This lineup is apt to expand a horizon or two! Virtual Artist Collective’s Donna Pucciani, Deborah Rosen, and Steven Schroeder will bring the rewards of experience and sustained passion for the written word to a stage shared by young writers just discovering their voices. So far, Caitlin Arquines, Hakeem Jones, Karyna Lopez, and Niani Scott will present work readied for Slammin’ the Sun Down (Sat. Jan 25, 9-3 at West Chicago’s Community H. S.) and Louder Than A Bomb (the month-long spoken word fest culminating at the Cadillac Theatre Mar 15). (Coaches for these poetry teams are Jen Gruca and Diana Zwinak.) Join us at Waterline Writers on Sunday, Jan. 19th at 7 pm for this unique event! Refreshments by Gibby’s Wine Bar & Market, filmed by BATV. Free!
