Live here? We want to hear your story. And Deborah Mutnick, of PLGNA and Long Island University, wants to help you write it as gooderer as possible.
Imagine a workshop, up at Grace Church on Bedford once a week, with neighbors from all walks of life, actively honing your skill of the quill. And then, having your story published in a Voices of Lefferts book, to be sold at none other than Greenlight Bookstore?
If you are someone, or perhaps more importantly if you KNOW someone, who has a song in their heart and a story to tell - or even just the story (I could set it to music if you like: Lefferts Gardens: The Musical) then by all means FILL OUT THIS FORM BELOW and send it to Professor Mutnick.
Actually, this form is a picture. A J-Peg if you will. So if you don't want to be bothered with a scanning it, just write her that you'd like to be part of the Voices of Lefferts workshops starting not this weekend but next, Feb 9.
So send her an email with your NAME, EMAIL, POSTAL ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER and the optionals: NEED CHILDCARE? AGE RENTER/OWNER? OCCUPATION RACE/ETHNICITY and she'll get back to you. She's good like that.
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
