EVENTS (to be continuously updated throughout the year)
New this year:
1) Common Threads events can take place anytime in 2015, so if you are interested in hosting a discussion or writing group, you can still do so! We just ask that you sign up so we can keep track of all the groups happening across the state.
2) Please send us photos & videos! We would love to add you to the media package--record yourself reading your favorite poem from the issue, take a snapshot of yourself with the issue, etc., and send to firstname.lastname@example.org or share via social media using the hashtag #CommonThreads2015.
If you are hosting a Common Threads event that is open to the public, please submit your event infowhen ready so that we can add it to the calendar.
