About the Event

By definition "to commune" is to come together. It is comforting to know that there exists a word for this desire to be with one another; it is also comforting to know that by sharing our words we possess the power to comfort one another. Known as Communals, these gatherings will be a mixture of generative writing and storytelling, held at the storied art institution, Pen + Brush, located in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City. Our mission is two-fold: to bring together like-minded communities, each of us focused on the creation of art and the celebration of our personal journeys, and to create a home base for writers in New York City. In hosting Communals and future events, our goal is to establish everyone who attends our events as writers. Whether you are a scribbler, a diarist, a poet, or a novelist – you are a writer who is welcome within our community. Communals are where we share words, share stories, and share dreams all with the sole purpose of offering a bit of that solace we're each looking for. Communals are a reminder of our shared power. Join us each month as we not only feature a phenomenal writer—but also feature a phenomenal you.

What to bring to Communals?

- Bring writing utensils

A pen and notebook, a laptop, a tablet: whatever you use to write is welcome

- Bring an open heart and mind

Prepare for a generative and socially creative evening: Communals is where we will be writing with one another, but also conversing and sharing with one another

- Bring your self

We welcome and celebrate you as you are, and hope you will do the same for your fellow writers
