Join author and playwright Diane Richards and your fellow writers for a fun and stimulating hour and a half of prompts, writing, and sharing. Sessions are separate - attend any or all.

Diane Richards, playwright, performer, and producer, serves as Executive Director of the Harlem Writers Guild. Her play Sowa’s Red Gravy was produced in 2012 by Woodie King Jr. of the New Federal Theater; The New York Times called it “an irresistible, lusty celebration of passions.” Her fiction and poetry have appeared in Beloved Harlem: A Literary Tribute to Black America’s Most Famous Neighborhood and Essence Magazine, and via the Harlem Writers Guild Press. More recently, in 2015, she co-produced Amiri Baraka’s final play—Most Dangerous Man in America—based on the life of W.E.B. Du Bois.

The September 22 session of this event has been canceled. Please join us beginning in October.


The Writing Life events in 2022 are generously underwritten by Jenny Lawrence.
