Over the past couple of months, write@253 has quietly been moving into their space on the Hilltop, ramping up for writing workshops, student tutoring, and lots of other word-based activity this summer. On Third Thursday Gallery Walk, June 21, they’re throwing open their doors with an open house and exhibition of artist-made books. You’re invited to 1310 MLK Way from 5-8 pm this Thursday to check out the space, meet the staff, learn about upcoming activities, and view the book arts exhibit, about Tacoma history and family narrative, courtesy of the University of Puget Sound Collins Memorial Library. Visitors will have the opportunity to sign up for workshops covering skills from creative writing to resumé crafting to poetry.
write@253’s mission is “to inspire the writer who lives in everyone, by nurturing creativity and celebrating the tremendous talents of our community.” What’s not to love? Give a big welcome to Tacoma’s own literary cadre as they mix it up with an all-ages community event! Find more info about this fantastic writing and tutoring program here.
