Sneak Peek 6/17: Create Lanterns/Words in JP

THUR 6/17 (and THUR 6/24)

6pm to 8:30pm
Shade-Making Party
at Eliot School, 24 Eliot St, Jamaica Plain
- Your time & effort -

The annual Lantern Festival at Forest Hills Cemetery is always one of the highlights in cheapness. You may not think about it, but the pond wouldn't look as special without the floating lanterns!

Volunteers are needed to make them. No experience needed -- they'll show you how to do it. They provide pizza even if you suck at it...

If you feel like it, there's another session next week at the same time.

Send them an email to let them know you're coming.

THUR 6/17
(thru THUR 7/28)

6:30pm to 8pm
Creative Writing Class
at Jamaica Plain Library, 12 Sedgwick St, Jamaica Plain

If you've been feeling like writing and could use some guidance and/or inspiration, it would be difficult to find better help than a free five-week workshop.

Writer and MFA candidate Abby Machson-Carter will be leading the class as it covers "poetry, prose, fiction and writing from memory" on 5 Thursdays over the next two months: 6/17, 6/24, 7/1, 7/15, and 7/28.

All you need to bring is a desire to write (and probably something to write with). Abby says, "Bring old pieces or start new ones – we’ll guarantee to get your creative juices flowing."

Email Abby if you want to register. I checked, and there are still some spots available.
