PEN America Emerging Voices Welcome Party

January 28

January 28, 7-9pm

Free event RSVP here.

Join PEN America in welcoming their 2020 Emerging Voices Fellows Damien Belliveau, Megan Dorame, Shannon Gatewood, M. Kiguwa, and Claire Lin, as they read together for the first time.

The Emerging Voices Fellowship is a literary mentorship that has provided new writers with the skills they need to launch a professional writing career since 1996, and LACE has been hosting this reading for the last five years. Hailed by many audience members as a favorite literary event of the season, past notable fellows have included Reyna Grande, Cynthia Bond, and Natashia Deón.

PEN America’s Emerging Voices Fellowship is generously supported by the California Arts Council, New Balloon and Catapult, Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, Pasadena Literary Alliance, UCLA Extension Writers’ Program, The Rosenthal Family Foundation, Jamie Wolf, and in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
