ABOUT WRITING SOUNDS LOUNGE
What is it?
Writing Sounds Lounge is a monthly drop-in program that invites attendees to write while listening. Guest musicians from the Providence community will perform while attendees are invited (but certainly not required) to write to specified prompts given by Frequency leaders.
Who can attend?
ANYONE. This is a community event. You do not need music or writing experience to attend. There is a small suggested donation to support the musician and the program, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
What will happen?
You will make yourself comfortable in our space at Ada Books. You may choose to drink some coffee or tea. Relax, listen, and write as you are inspired to do so. You will not be asked to share your writing with anyone. After the musician finishes playing (after about 45 minutes), you can leave or choose to stay and discuss your experiences with the musician and each other.
Bring your preferred writing materials. You may also want to bring a yoga mat or blanket to make yourself comfortable on the floor. Chairs will also be available.
Frequency looks for ways to bridge writing with other art forms. The Rhode Island arts community is vast and we hope that this program will bring together writers, musicians, music lovers, writers-to-be, and anyone looking to enrich their Sunday mornings among friends.
Writing Sounds Lounge is hosted and curated by S. Tourjee.
