Join me August 16th for FREE WRITE, a benefit in support of workshops for youth offenders in Toronto. Yours truly will be hosting!

The Cypher Writers’ Collective, formally known as NOW HEAR THIS! has been facilitating creative writing workshops for young offenders in collaboration with Operation Springboard for two years.

In celebration of this achievement, CWC is hosting a concert featuring Progress, Jaydahmann and Spin el Poeta, our facilitators and the Youth Funk Band, a 6 piece funk band of young musicians.

Show takes place at The Revival Bar (783 College Street) from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. Come early and participate in the raffle for your chance to win amazing prizes.

Support community building and alternative education for youth in the justice system by spending your Friday night with us

Tickets: $10 Doors: $15. Tickets can be purchased at A Different Booklist, 746 Bathurst Street (just south of Bloor)
