…and proud of it! Thanks, Molly Lederer, for the shout out in the Providence Monthly!

The Other Providence Club Scene

From chess to art, from beards to geekery, local clubs and gatherings offer a different kind of night out

For the creative writer, Frequency is a community arts organization that offers rigorous, experiential workshops, holds readings and talks, and helps local writers and readers to connect. Co-director Darcie Dennigan notes, “It’s pretty exciting to look around the table and see how many terrific, interesting, diverse writers there are in southeastern New England. I’m constantly impressed by the writers in our workshops, both seasoned or published ones and complete greenhorns.”Frequency also hosts free “writers’ parties” every few months, where guests read their work aloud in a casual, open mic setting – and clink a few wine glasses in the process. Dennigan, an accomplished author herself, recalls that both she and her co-director Evelyn Hampton benefited from being part of different writing communities when they began writing. They hope for Frequency to serve that purpose for RI writers, even encouraging them to form spin-off writing groups of their own.http://www.providenceonline.com/stories/Providence-meetups-clubs-gatherings-Providence-Monthly,9684
