Lip Service Olympic Games

On Friday, April 25, 2014, Carlos Frias took home the Lip Service Gold.  His story about buying his daughter’s first bra made everybody say “ooooh.”  Silver went to Kathie Klarreich and Bronze to Nick Ducassi.  Games well played.

We were part of the first annual Lit Crawl Miami.  Lit Crawl = bar crawl with booze + literature.   
Thank you O’Miami and The Betsy South Beach for making it happen.  Thank you to our host Doug Shear and the kick-ass judges: Christina Freedman, Tammy Green, Esther Martinez, and Nick Garnett plus all the storytellers who weren’t afraid to step to the mic and be judged.

Memoir Writing Class: What Is It About This Place?

NEW CLASS DATE CHANGE!  Back to school.  Date TBA.  Taught by Enzu Castellanos

As residents of South Florida, we live in a place that drives our stories.  Moving through the physical terrain of our lives, we encounter people, places, situations, and things that intrigue, amuse, and even offend or inspire us.  In this workshop, writers will use the places they go–whether frequently, or for the first time–to mine stories that bring the location to life for the reader while revealing the thoughts and emotions of the storyteller.

The workshop prompts will challenge writers to build scenes, develop point of view, create themes, chose concrete language, evoke reflection, practice objective and subjective observation, and bring it all together in effective storytelling.  Writers will explore and identify not only the environments that they enter, but also the effects of those environments on themselves and others.  All writing will be read aloud and workshopped by the group.

Enzu Castellanos is a South Florida native with a background in arts promotion, production, and management.  He is currently in the Florida International University Creative Writing MFA program.  He teaches writing and rhetoric.

Class meets 8 Thursdays.  Starting June 26, 2014.  7 p.m. to 10 p.m.  $240.  Miami Beach campus.  Exact location, TBA.

To register, go to www.paypal.com and pay $240 to info@lipservicestories.com.

Hurry, only 10 spots available!
