Junior Varsity: Ingratitude

  • Joie DeVine 1744 West Balmoral Avenue Chicago, IL, 60640 United States (map)

To gird our loins for the holiday season, the JV community gathers on November 14th to celebrate ingrattitude. In a season where 'grateful' gets alot of press, we're going to turn the stage over to her equally powerful and necessary sister un— (other aliases include nope, no thanks, not ever/not today, and get back ye satan). Ingrattitude is the all too appropriate response to political and personal transgressions, bad advice, bad luck, and bad weather. Join us on the 14th as we hold hands, go around the table, and say what ISN'T working for us. 

Workshop Artists Include
Lucy Diavolo, a muscian and Teen Vougue contributor bringing us her short fiction. 

Pablo Otavalo, poet and curator of the Kafein reading series with poems on the theme. 

Rose Boyle, a writer based in Chicago with more sparkling prose. 

and our Poetics is by workshop favorite/ playwright/ actor/ performer Terry Guest!
