The popular monthly event is one of winners of the Knight Arts Challenge which funds projects that engage and enrich Detroit through the arts. Satori Shakoor, curator and producer of the event is a recent recipient of the “Spirit of Detroit” Award.

“Events like the Secret Society’s bring out the artist in all of us, helping us to think creatively about our lives and our communities and share the stories that bring people together,” said Dennis Scholl, vice president of arts for Knight Foundation.

“Storytelling is a way for people to learn more about themselves and each other,” says Juanita Moore, president of the Charles H. Wright Museum, which hosts the events. “People coming to these shows experience a feeling of life, growth and excitement through connecting, and that deserves a place to be showcased.”

The Motown Writers’ Network brings the community together!

Monthly Meet Up for writers focuses on the community. 

 

DETROIT – On August 10, 2013 the Motown Writers’ Network (MWN), which holds a monthly Meet Up for Detroit area authors and writers shifts its focus in August to bring awareness to community activities, and raise funds and register people for the MWN November conference.

At the Meet and Greet, representatives from Detroit area non-profits organizations, libraries and authors will speak about their projects and activities and network with the literary community. Those with events for the community to attend will also have the opportunity to speak with leaders in the literary community, meet local authors and share event fliers and materials with attendees.

“In August, we dedicate our monthly writers’ discussion at Barnes and Noble Bookstore to readers, writers and the community,” says Sylvia Hubbard, founder and president of the Motown Writers’ Network and Michigan Literary Network.  “We want to increase awareness of the needs in Metro Detroit and the Meet Up kicks off our conference season leading up to our annual Essence of Motown Literary Jam and Conference in November.”

Hubbard, who often pays for the annual conference largely out of her own purse, asks August Meet and Greet attendees to donate towards the conference. “We are hoping this year to make our writer’s portion of the conference free through grants, but we still need location fees, lunch sponsorships, and other fees.

So we use the Meet and Greet as our initial fundraiser.”

The Literary Meet and Greet includes networking, giving opportunities to strengthen the Metro Detroit literary community, theatrical performances and the chance to win books and reading devices!

The Motown Writers’ Network’s Literary Meet and Greet is 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, August 10, 2013 at Barnes and Noble Bookstore on Wayne State University’s Campus, 82 W. Warren in Detroit.
