Words At Weeksville

Throughout Weeksville's 180-year history, the written word has been interwoven throughout every era. From it's 19th century newspaper, The Freedman's Torchlight to our annual poetry slam, literary arts has a home here at Weeksville. 

Words@Weeksville is a new monthly literary series consisting of both a reading series and an adult writing workshop, curated by Bridgett M. Davis, author and the director of Sidney Harman Writer-in-Residence Program at Baruch College. The adult writing workshops offer aspiring writers the opportunity to work on craft in a group setting with an published author. The fee for the two-hour workshop is $20 and participants will receive a copy of the writer’s book. 

Powered by the wealth of literary talent of established and emerging authors and poets from across the African diaspora, Words @ Weeksville is the literary hub of Central Brooklyn.
