Swing on by Lighthouse at 4:30 PM, grab some coffee and cookies, or crack open a beer, find your favorite perch, and fire out your 500 words. Then at 5:30 PM, keep on writing or gather for discussions on craft, conversations with guest authors, or spontaneous group writing and sharing.
The Friday 500 happens from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM every 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month.
- January 27
- February 10

This event is for current Lighthouse members, though guests are welcome to visit once before joining.

Do your poems advocate for social change? Are your short stories filled with cause-driven characters? Do your essays examine issues like race, class, or gender? If so, how so? And if not, why not? During the second hour of this week's Friday 500, we'll use writing prompts and excerpts from Claudia Rankine's Citizen: An American Lyric to inspire a discussion about civic-minded lit.
