This month we feature writing by

Danny Powell

For the next three months, we are going to reduce the amount of our featured readers from 4 to 2. We are going to offer 2-3 spots for those who want a particular piece of prose performance workshopped. These are the rules.

1. This workshop is for fiction or non-fiction only.

We may expand this to poetry during a future There Will Be Verse if the interest is there.

2. Writers who have never read before at There Will Be Words will get first crack at the open spots.

3. If we have more than 2-3 interested writers, we will randomly draw for who gets to read. You must be in the room when we draw. If you aren't selected and you leave before the show is over, you are ineligible to sign up for any future openings.

4. Readers who participate in the performance workshop will have five minutes to read.

5. After five minutes, the host will solicit the audience, the featured readers to provide feedback on what worked well and what could be improved upon. The host will reinforce a constructive environment throughout this process.

6. The host will then ask you to send you your piece if you want some additional feedback from me from a writing perspective. It's my way of saying thank you for participating in this performance workshop. Do NOT submit anything greater than 2,000 words.
If this works out well over the next three months, we'll keep doing it during our regular shows. If not, we'll go back to our previous format.

If you'd like to be a beta-tester performer for this new format, email me at with the Subject line: Performance Workshop Beta-Tester.
