WARRENSBURG - Jessica Kane of Brant Lake - author, playwright, artist spoken-word performer, and singer - will be conducting a writing workshop in January.
The goal of the workshop is to complete a short essay or a short story, and then record it as an audio piece, Kane noted this week.
The writing workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on three consecutive Saturdays: Jan. 15, 22, and 29 at Willows Bistro in Warrensburg. The class sessions break for lunch from noon to 1 p.m.
After these three sessions, once everyone's pieces are complete, we will arrange the recording sessions on a one-by-one basis.The fee for this course is $200, which includes the recording session. Class is limited to six participants. RSVP by December 15 at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 494-7018.
Kane's off-kilter humor is threaded through her work, whether it's her nouveau-country singing, her idiosyncratic narratives and poetry, or her eccentric sculptures.
Reviewers have praised her writing, noting that her keen observation transforms the mundane world into a compelling new light.
Kane has been published in Prevention Magazine, Carbon 14 and El Petit Journal. In 2008, she wrote a series of weekly personality profiles for the Adirondack Journal.
