No Room for Fear: Write Your Way Toward Healing at The Red Shoes

Come together as a community to make sense of the events of the last few months through writing in this 3-hour workshop. Don't listen to that voice that says, "but I'm not a writer." If you're willing to sit in a chair; pick up a pen; and put it to paper, you are. We all have our own voices and we need to use them now more than ever.

 

Facilitated by Robin Palmer Blanche, 12-time published author and screenwriter.

$2 Donation.

Listening Party Presents: Dave Ross

Featuring:
Nick Portier
Vaughan Veillon
Joe Hafky

Hosted by Evan Rabalais

Dave Ross is a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles. Sometimes his comedy is vulnerable and personal. Other times his comedy is loud, stupid and about butts. You can find him stumbling around L.A. and the country, performing at every festival, club, theater, bar, fire hall or bombed-out stone building that will have him. He's in a sketch group called WOMEN that makes sketches for Comedy Central and IFC's Comedy Crib. He hosts the podcast Terrified on the Nerdist Network. He won a MOTH Grand Slam, he got interviewed on WTF with Marc Maron, and he told a story on Comedy Central's Drunk History. He likes his cat. His cat is dope.
