Dead Writers Night and Costume Party Benefit
Oct 24 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

 

Love reading the works of our dearly departed? Like to dress up and strut your stuff?  Then Dead Writers Night is the evening for you. Join us for a night of unspeakable horror as you bring your favorite dead writers to life. Come dressed as Hawthorne, Austin, Chekhov, Woolf…the author of your dreams, and bring a two minute sample of their writing to share. Participate in the Costume Parade and win a fabulous prize to be awarded by our panel of judges. And here’s the highlight: five Santa Cruz writers will use a Ouija board to contact a dead writer chosen by popular vote of those in attendance. Sliding scale donations. Students: $5-$20; General: $25-$50. All donations used to 1.) train volunteers working with students on their writing and 2.) publish student work. Student sliding scale available with valid ID.
