Sunday, January 27th doors @ 6:30pm (event is 1hr & a half) FIRESIDE at LIC Bar’s carriage house!
At this cozy (indoor) fireside literary event, you’ll be treated to two sides of each local Queens writer’s talent: their traditional/polished poetry and prose work, but ALSO what they can churn out on the spot – yes, live writing!
You, the audience, will have the opportunity to contribute a writing prompt to the pool – each writer will receive a random prompt and have to write from it on the spot (as you would at a writing workshop), and present to the audience at the end.
Sound fun? Join us!
Featuring: Michael Stahl Sweta Srivastava Vikram Carrie Noel Michael Alpiner

To everyone who participated in the first ever Astoria Art Fest, especially the incredible venue owners, artists who came out to support and represent, friends who offered help and feedback, Astorians who made it out to every event, and of course the collective members. You’re all troopers.. We love you.
Influences: I would describe my work as centered on solitude and nature–it came naturally to me when I started shooting. Being a history teacher I deal a lot with human frailty, so my work seeks to examine the world beyond the human condition. Artists such as Edward Hopper and Sally Mann continually inspire me.
