LIVE at Kelly Writers House

  • 3805 Locust Walk Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States (map)

Join us for the recording of an episode of LIVE at the Writers House featuring writers affiliated with Blue Stoop, a new literary hub in Philadelphia. The reading will feature Joshua Demaree, Thomas Devaney, Boston Gordon, Berry Grass, and Raena Shirali, and musical guest Joey Sweeney. 

Blue Stoop, named after a poem by Thomas Devaney, which was in turn inspired by a photograph by Zoey Strauss, is a literary space for writers in Philly to meet, work, take or offer high-quality and inclusive writing classes, as well as an organization hosting reading and events. It's currently spearheaded by Joshua Demaree and Emma Eisenburg. 

LIVE at the Writers House is a long-standing collaboration of the people of the Kelly Writers House and of WXPN (88.5 FM). Six times annually between September and April, the Writers House airs a one-hour broadcast of poetry, music, and other spoken-word art, along with one musical guest -- from our Arts Cafe onto the airwaves at WXPN. "LIVE" is broadcast on WXPN. "LIVE" is made possible through the generous support of BigRoc. More info here.
