Just Working On My Breakup
WORD (126 Franklin St., Brooklyn)
Just Working On My Novel returns from winter hibernation with a freshly broken heart! For this installment, we’re nodding towards Valentine’s Day and flipping it off by asking for your sad stories, your breakup stories, your humiliating stores of love gone bad. Bonus points if your story ends hilariously instead of tragically (and triple points for both). Memoir and fiction welcome, with a ten-minute time limit. February’s host is the esteemed and in-freaking-credible Jean Grae: rapper, singer, writer, and probably chef, too. RSVP in advance to read to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bring: yourself, a bottle of wine, your friends.
