Thursday, December 17, local creative writing workshop program WriteByNight hosted an evening of literary readings, live music and fun at WineStyles in Palm City. The event celebrated the culmination of WriteByNight’s 8-week fall workshop session. The Creative Writing Workshop’s 9 dedicated members read from original works–genres ranged from fiction to non-fiction to poetry to memoir–addressing an audience of 50-plus. Guests sipped wine and munched hors d’oeuvres, spellbound by the writers’ talents and seasoned performances. 

Other highlights of the evening included musical performances by local songwriter Luke Mazzina, and a high-yield raffle with prizes generously donated by local businesses such as Edible Spirits, Apree Salon, WineStyles and, of course, WriteByNight. Lucky winners took home holiday cakes, salon services, wine tastings, writing consultations and workshop discounts, values ranging $50 – $100. Food for the event was provided by the Tabuleh Café at Planet Ozone.
