Newtown Literary Alliance, a non-profit organization benefiting the literary scene in Queens, NY, is having its second annual Queens Writes! Weekend to raise funds for our programs. We publish a semi-annual literary journal, hold a student writing contest, and provide low-cost writing workshops.
The Queens Writes Weekend will be a weekend-long event held at various locations around the borough where participants come to write for a few hours. That’s it! We want Queens to write! Our goal is to have sites all over the borough at all times during the weekend. We will advertise the sites on our website so that participants can find a location and time that works best for them.
