New York City News & Events
A Monthly Compendium of Information and Events
for Writers in the New York City Area
|Join us on Thursday, May 2, for a special evening with novelist Aaron Hamburger. In the current issue of Poets & Writers Magazine, Hamburger writes, "I've always loved food -- eating it, cooking it, and reading about it -- so I thought that once I mastered the basics of the genre, I could easily make the transition from fiction writing to food writing." |
Instead, he learned a thing or two about the creative process, and about life.
We've invited Aaron to discuss what he's learned and to demonstrate how to make his fabulous limoncello cupcakes.
Thursday, May 2 at 6:30 p.m.
Whole Foods Market on Houston and Bowery
Tickets are $20, $10 for Friends of Poets & Writers
Reservations required; seating very limited

|Women Poets, 30 and Under |
Applications are now being accepted for the 2013 Amy Award. Poets & Writers presents the Amy Award each year to recognize promising women poets, age 30 and under, living in the New York City metropolitan area or on Long Island. Winners receive a modest honorarium and give a reading in New York City. The award was established in 1995 by Paula Trachtman and Edward Butscher of East Hampton, New York, in memory of Ms. Trachtman's daughter, Amy Rothholz, an actor and poet.
