quiet lightning + porchlight storytelling on april 15

Matthew Rodgers @ SomArts by Sarah Carpenter

Thanks to everyone who came out to SomArts last night for our collaboration with Feast of Words, and especially to Pachamama Cookery for preparing such a beautiful meal. That was definitely one of the most unusual Quiet Lightnings yet—a true pleasure to see two series coming together like that to form something unique. Click here to watch the entire show – including the group exercise – and stay tuned for photos… but the Tour goes on!

April 15th is our show with Porchlight storytelling: half true stories told without notes and half writing of any kind. Yes, we’re going to take storytelling in one hand and literature in the other and we are going to clap them together! We’re accepting submissions through the end of this Monday, March 25th. Please (yes you!) submit.

If you’re just joining us, welcome! We’re currently taking a Tour Through Town. It’s been wild so far, but we’re just getting started. We’re also accepting submissions for our 42nd show: May 3 with the Studio One Reading Series in Oakland. We’re going to take the poetry of Adeena Karasick and Erica Lewis, along with work from the submissions we receive, and make a literary mixtape called Hidden Tracks. Submissions for that show are open through the end of Wednesday, April 17th.

What would you like to do?

The books we print of each show, sparkle + blink, have now been read online over 200,000 times! Not bad for a literary journal, eh?
