The Other Means Reading Series brings together three writers for reading events that benefit a mutually-agreed-upon cause. Tonight’s edition has a design-for-good feel to it: It features Martin Pedersen, Karrie Jacobs and Philip Nobel reading various works of fiction and non-fiction related to design, and benefits the Hester Street Collective, a design-build org that works in low income NYC neighborhoods. Nobel tells us that he’ll be reading an excerpt of a biography of the architect/polymath Jacob Karl he’s currently working on. If you ask him nicely, maybe he’ll read his criticism manifesto for you, too. Last Exit Bar, 8pm.
Taught by an editor at Alloy Entertainment, the goal of this class is to finish your YA or middle grade novel in 12 weeks. Starting on March 10, you will learn how to write a proposal that doesn’t end up in the slush pile, evaluate your story arc for a teen audience, get an agent (if you need one!), and more!
