On Sunday, January 21st, from 3-5 pm, I will be participating in an event hosted by Karineh Mahdessian & Jessica Ceballos y Campbell & co-hosted by Angelina Sáenz.
“Creating, Nurturing, Sustaining:: a reading and conversation” invites creators, producers, curators, hosts, and supporters of readings across the Los Ángeles literaryscape to read their work, as not only hosts/creators/supporters, but as artists who contribute to the landscape in more ways than one. The reading will be followed by a panel discussion on what it means to create (readings, lit events), and how we grow community around these events (equity in promotion, investing in community capital), and how we sustain that community (publishing, relationships, self-care).

THE TABLE Reading Series is a collection of twelve reading events executive produced by Natashia Deón, and in partnership with The Hollywood Hotel, with a mission to engage the next generation of writers and readers and fans of the arts by giving them a seat at the table; to help them to be actively engaged in the writing community by training them, giving them a space to begin, help them to reach new or estranged writers in Los Angeles, and to provide fresh outlets for writers and fans to engage and contribute to the vibrancy of the Los Angeles literary community.
