PEN Write Now: Prompt Party

PEN Write Now: Prompt Party

One Prompt.

Endless Possibilities.

The Prompt Party was an engaging, interactive workshop where participants grouped off to create a short performance based on a shared prompt. The fast-paced, judgment-free environment encourages creativity without time for doubt and stresses collaboration as essential to community-building. Local actors, writers, and others served as facilitators to help shape the performances. This event partnered with the English Department at Blue Ridge Community College, Hendersonville Theatre, and PEN Piedmont.

If you want to “spark” your creativity and build community, this is it!

This event is part of PEN Write Now, an initiative dedicated to engaging North Carolina’s traditionally underserved communities through joyful, literary-focused interactive events. The series will create spaces for collective conversations and cultivate audiences often underrepresented by literary programming. PEN Write Now is sponsored by the Piedmont Chapter of PEN America with support from the North Carolina Arts Council.

Many thanks to Hendersonville Theatre and the cast of the upcoming show, The Savannah Sipping Society, for being part of the Prompt Party. Learn more about their 2023 season here.
