To cultivate interest in the written word by expanding a neighborhood art space's literary series to include authors from outside the city

To cultivate interest in the written word, Public Pool, a neighborhood art space in Hamtramck, will further develop its literary series, the Good Tyme Writer’s Buffet. The event brings together writers for short readings in a relaxed gallery setting where they are surrounded by art, a table full of food and a DJ who spins during the breaks. The informality allows for experimentation. With funding, the Public Pool will provide an honorarium for more writers from beyond the city. Each event will be timed to a specific exhibition at the Public Pool, pairing a writer who shares a similar tone or style with the artist on exhibition to expand the impact of both.
