Sunday Creative Writing Workshop

private residence

address TBA upon registration, Los Angeles, CA 90046

11:00am to 1:00pm

Be creative every weekend and learn about the craft of writing along the way. Los Angeles Writers Group offers a supportive environment where you can show up and write for 2 hours based on creative writing prompts we’ll give you. You’ll delve into new characters, explore different settings, hone memories for memoir pieces, or discover a new poetic form. You can share what you wrote, or not–no pressure! Either way, you’ll leave feeling inspired, with new writing and new ideas. The writing exercises we give are based on the needs of the group, on narrative elements, and on highlighting your inner creativity, propelling you to write what you may have never otherwise written. Please note that these workshops are not lecture-based and do not include a critique portion. We get right down to writing.

The Last Sunday: An Evening of Poetry & Art

USVAA Theater in the AMVETS Post II Building

10858 Culver Blvd, Culver City, CA

6:00pm to 9:00pm

It’s May, so come eat, drink, be merry, be entertained with some of the best artists LA has to offer, and know that you are helping to make a real difference in our community. A portion of all donations go directly to the Mayor Garcetti’s End Veteran Homelessness campaign and the 10,000 Strong Hiring Initiative. Together we can make the world just a little better place than it was yesterday. This month we have quite the treat in store for everyone. It is our great pleasure to have Armond Kinard and Matthew “Cuban” Hernandez as our features.

Armond Kinard is actively involved in many creative activities from writing to acting to photography and more. He has been performing poetry since 2010, but has been creative since childhood. If you enjoy anything you see of him, feel free to add him on Facebook to find out more. You can also view his sensual poetry series, "The Book of Sultry". In 2013, this series won two awards for producing and writing. Previous and upcoming episodes can be viewed on vimeo.com/thebookofsultry.

Matthew "Cuban" Hernandez started slamming on the Brave New Voices circuit at the age of 15 years old, often needing to be escorted by his mother at the adult venues. In the past 7 years Cuban has grown from a poetry wunderkind to a 2-time Southern Fried Regional Poetry Slam champion (2006, individual; 2008 team), has been seen on HBO's Brave New Voices, and is the CEO of Shattered Thought Inc, which successfully coached a youth team to Brave New Voices finals in 2009. When he isn't on the road touring, Cuban lives in Jacksonville, FL as a full-time poet, organizer, and youth mentor.

We would also like to give a shout out to your new fine arts director Roberto Zea (Veteran, U.S.M.C.) He will be hosting the art gallery from 6pm-7pm. So come early to check out the art gallery and sign up on the open mic.
