While I am pouring over submissions and planning the next show check out some events that ExMo alum here in Los Angeles are up to.
Loretta Fox will be sharing one of her stories with fellow ExMo alum Larry Dean Harris’ show Strong Words. The show will be held in SilverLake on February 28th, an all female cast. Details on the flier.
In March ExMo alum Elizabeth Aquino will be hosting another Books & Bakes, a literary food salon.
“Are you a lover of literature but stuck in a book group that never really discusses the book? Are you a lover of food but want to cut through the pretension of the foodie world? Do you revel in devouring both beautiful fiction and food, especially when they intersect? Are you looking for unique gift for your loved ones or yourself? Come join a community of like-minded sounds and share your love of literature and food at my second Books & Bakes literally and food salon. Salon size is limited to 10 so RSVP early.
$75 per person includes facilitated discussion about The Debt to Pleasure, related food and alcohol.
Email Elizabeth Aquino at elosophie (at) gmail.com for more information and to RSVP.
Lastly, if you like women who drink and swear please join Mommy Tonk at private home on the East side April 19th at 4PM. Food and alcohol provided and a show! $40, get your friends and come get rowdy.
Submissions for the next Expressing Motherhood will be accepted soon, Monday February 16th.
I am looking for pieces about motherhood, when read aloud, that are 5 minutes long.
The show will be one night only downtown at The Downtown Independent.
Looking forward to your submission.
Also, between now and February 28th if you tag a photo with #expressingmotherhood you’ll enter yourself into a pot of possibly winning 3 dozen cupcakes from Serendipity Cupcakes and an ExMo t-shirt.
Kristy Woelfel, owner of Serendipty Cupcakes, delivered cupcakes to the wonderful pediatric unit at Hungtington Hospital who recently took care of my son. She was so kind and loves what she does so I talked to her about doing a giveaway. She was up for it.
