Want to spend a couple of hours on Lake Union in the company of savvy writers? Looking for intelligent critique of your work—whether poetry, fiction or something in between? Join the Poetilla, a writers’ round table on the water.
Next Tuesday at 6:30 pm—rain or shine—we’ll depart aboard a 21’ electric boat with a shade canopy and panels that can be closed or open. No need to worry about weather. Bring food and drink if you like. We’ll drift in the middle of the lake for a friendly but intense literary plunge.
There’s space for the first 10 to arrive (any overflow can adjourn down the street to the Rock Salt Steak House–definitely cheesy, but with great lake views and an excellent happy hour). Please bring 10 copies of any work you plan to read. We’ll return to the dock at 8:18 pm. Your donation of between $6.16 and $8.18 helps cover the boat rental.
Poetilla launches from the Electric Boat Company dock (2046 Westlake Ave N #102) on the west side of the lake, just north of China Harbor restaurant. There’s plenty of parking. Also reachable via the 27, 17, and 358 buses. Walking down the winding stairs from Aurora Ave to lake level is a treat.
The next Poetilla launches Tuesday, August 14 at 6:30 pm.
