Lone Tree Arts Center and Lighthouse Writers Workshop are collaborating on a new project together. Participants will write previews and critical reviews of performances at the Arts Center, in exchange for a pair of tickets to the performance about which they’re writing. These previews and reviews will be shared on the organization’s websites, blogs, and social media. It’s a great way to marry the performing arts with your love of writing, and also for your writing to be seen out in the world! Requirements: attend a workshop on critical writing on October 26, and then commit to writing previews/reviews in a timely manner (previews – one to two weeks before the performance; reviews – within three days of the performance). This program is limited to twenty participants.
