Community Engagement Goes Virtual

As the pandemic continues to shutter in-person programming, we think the need for reading and writing is more important than ever. As your friendly neighborhood literary center, we’d like to continue filling your newsfeeds with a little more light and art.

To this end, we’re offering a little Lighthouse inspiration each day, from daily write-ins and conversations with authors to archive snapshots and live readings from authors on tour, Lighthouse instructors, and community members. 

Find below the schedule of what to expect and when to tune in. And don't forget about our regular Friday events (Queer Creatives and Writing in Color).

Weekly Schedule 

  • Monday through Friday: Daily Virtual Write-In on Zoom, 9:30 AM to 12:30PM. Need a little community for your daily writing time? Or need some structure to create daily writing time? Jump in on any day that works for you (or all of them) and write with a group of us. Email [email protected] for the Zoom link.

  • Monday through Friday (Excluding Wednesday): Several days a week, "Throw Me a Line," a new short video interview with an author, will be posted on the Lighthouse YouTube channel.

  • Wednesday: 10 Minute Virtual Book Reviews Through a Crafting Lens with book reviewer and Lighthouse faculty member Jenny Shank on the Lighthouse YouTube channel.

  • Friday: Virtual Happy Hour Readings featuring authors with recently released books via Facebook Live and Zoom (the link won't work until 15 minutes prior), 5:00 to 6:00 PM; Virtual Youth Open Mic each Friday 3:30 to 4:30 PM via Zoom.
