Partying with “Frequent” Writers

Reza Rites shares pix and praise from the Feed the Writers Literary Fest, a fundraiser held Sunday, October 20, 2013 to benefit the Frequency writers group/program.

PROVIDENCE, RI – #3amblack (3 AM is the New Black), the #ambitiousblackfeminist and las #supernenas (Tamariposa and Reza Rites) always like a good party. That’s why we were glad we made out to last Sunday’s Feed the Writers Literary Festival – a fundraiser held to benefit Frequency. 

The fun that night entailed a plethora of books on sale and available for those who entered into door prizes, snacks and beverages provided by a variety of local companies and establishments, four writing-on-demand stations flanked by writers who sat ready by their typewriters, and a room full of kind, curious, engaging attendees.

I know I’ll be spending more time with this group. Below is more info from their Facebook page so that you can assess whether you’ll get more involved too.

Sunshine and laughter,
