Contribute to the Ignite Art, Poetry and Short Story Anthology Project!

An anthology is a collection of selected literary pieces, passages or works of art, usually highlighting a theme. Rue Sparks, our Maker-in-Residence for Fall 2023, is collecting work for an anthology that will feature work from patrons of all ages! Work can be created independently or you can connect with Rue during an open studio or class to work on a piece. Read on to learn how to contribute to the Ignite Art, Poetry and Short Story Anthology Project!

Part book launch, part creativity session, this laid-back event is a chance to get to know the creators highlighted in the Makerspace anthology, ask your burning questions on ‘how they did it’ and end the year right: making even more things!

Looking forward to seeing your submissions!
