Pages in Bloom: A Writers Read Event May 15th from 2-3pm

The Olympic Peninsula Authors (OPA) will be reading their short prose pieces at the Blue Whole Gallery on Wednesday, May 15th from 2-3 p.m. at 129 W. Washington St. The writers will be reading pieces that may be a short story, essay, memoir or longer prose poem.

In a world inundated with digital media, there’s something inherently intimate and authentic about hearing an author read their own prose at our Writers Read events. Listeners are treated to more than just words; they are granted access to the very essence of the writer’s voice, their intonations, and inflections breathing life into the narrative.

For authors, reading aloud offers them an opportunity to connect directly with their audience, to convey the emotions and nuances embedded within their writing with an immediacy that transcends the written page. Through the cadence of their speech and the timbre of their voice, authors become the conduits through which their stories come alive.

For the audience, the experience is equally enriching. They become active participants of the storytelling process as the author and listener journey through the narrative together.

In an age where technology has reshaped the way we consume literature, Writers Read events serve as a poignant reminder of the enduring power of voice—the power to captivate, to inspire, and to forge connections across time and space.“Come and listen to the writers get wordy!,” said Linda Myers, from the Olympic Peninsula Authors.

This event on Wednesday, May 15th from 2-3 p.m. at 129 W. Washington Street is free and open to the public.
