Monday, August 19th, 7:00 – 10:30 pm THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL (1973 - 1980)

If you've attended Assembly Literary Open Mic you should be familiar with the writing prompt at the end of the evening. GASOLINE takes this concept further with a series of writing prompts in the style of a guided meditation provided by Kate Berwanger of Surreal Storytelling by Strange Women fame. 

All skill levels are welcome to participate, but this salon is reserved for women, non-binary, and queer writers. The Velvet Elk venue is 21+ and this private session takes place in our upstairs lounge, a cozy den-like setting.

At the end of your writing journey, you will have the opportunity to read your piece à la Assembly Open Mic. There is no pressure to share your work.

Limited slots available, purchase tickets HERE
