Open Mic 5/6/19

The Gloucester Writers Center hosts an Open Mic on the first Monday of (almost) every month.

Each presenter gets 5 minutes.

Bring your words. Get Heard.

At the Gloucester Writers Center, our mission is to celebrate and preserve Gloucester’s literary history, and to share that literary spirit with all in our future. We work to ensure that every voice can explore, develop, and be heard through dialogue, the literary arts, and the artistic process.

Orange Crane Drive for National Gun Violence Awareness Day

Gun violence affects individuals, families and friends. But it also affects entire communities. Help us show that as a community we are willing to stand up against gun violence.

Origami cranes are a symbol of hope and healing. Each crane is a prayer, a thought, a remembrance. Every crane folded is an action.

Orange is the color of National Gun Violence Awareness Day. Read about it at We are making orange cranes to remember victims of gun violence.

We will be collecting cranes to have with us at City Hall in Gloucester on Friday, June 2 at 10:00 for a National Gun Violence Awareness Ceremony.

Cranes can be left at the Eastern Point Lit House on Main Street, Celia’s Flower Studio in Lanesville, Coveted Yarn and the Universalist Unitarian Church or delivered to Amanda Cook or brought to City Hall on June 2.

We will be having a ceremony at City Hall on Friday, June 2 at 10:00 and a vigil at the Universalist Unitarian Church at 7:00. The church will be open at 6:00 to make cranes and write post cards concerning gun violence to officials.

After June 2 the cranes will become part of the art show RESIST: The Art of Protest at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center.20170522_134050
