Join YPoP For Pens & Pints: A Literary Social Event! (Literacy Not Required)

Credit to John Tuesday on Upsplash.

Tomorrow night at 6 PM, join us at the restaurant Game On in Parma Heights, where people will meet, drink, and if they feel loose enough, write! The goal, besides to enjoy a pleasant evening socializing, is to encourage people to hear others share stories of their own.

Attendees will pull a Parma-related topic out of a basket and have the opportunity to either tell a story related to the prompt, or to write a poem about it. The group will then vote on the best poem or story of the night, and winners in each category will receive gift card prizes.

Pens and paper will be provided, and Young Professionals of Parma will offer appetizers. This event is free to the public, and you may RSVP by signing up for the event via Facebook. An RSVP isn’t mandatory, but it helps the event planners prepare catering and party supplies. Join us tomorrow, Wednesday February 15th at 6 PM in Game On, located at 6425 Pearl Road.
