From the graphic novel Pretty Deadly, by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios

Led by Janaya Kizzie, the interim Co-Director of Frequency Writers, this reading group will explore great weird works of female authors past and present. In collaboration with Frequency Writers, group members will receive an optional writing prompt to further delve into the potential and craft of the weird in their own work.

This reading group meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30-7pm, September 13 through June 13, at the Providence Athenæum.

In addition, Frequency Writers is offering a spooky one-day writing workshop on October 29th, Exquisite Frankenstein: Reanimate your writing, also led by Janaya Kizzie along with Rekha Rosha. Information about other writing classes, community events, and scholarships are available on the Frequency Writers website:
