BARELIGHT IS ON THE HUNT ! by Ellen Steves

B (2).jpg

Barelight is on the lookout for writers who embody the same set of qualities we hold in highest regard. That is to say, writers who search in the darkest corners for a little bit of light.

We are looking for writers who could use a little support,  who are willing to share work at any stage of development.

Bring us your mess. 

We meet once a week, and are looking for special guests who would be interested in taking advantage of our "Three Hour Residency." program.

If you are eager and interested, please e-mail me at ellen.steves@gmail.com

 

 

 

Silverlake Picture Show by Ellen Steves

Last week, the Silverlake Picture Show screened "A League Of Their Own".

Besides featuring queen goddess Geena Davis; it was a great reminder that progress starts and stops. We take two steps forward and three steps back. You could feel it permeate through the crowd; we were grateful, we were relieved. We could love America because America is baseball. We could love ourselves because we are baseball. 

It felt good to be hopeful. 

That's my favorite thing about the picture show. It's not just movies. There is a thirst in this city. We are craving to connect. We want community, now more than ever before. Gathering together to celebrate being alive. 

Because they can't take away our right to meet.

BARELIGHT by Ellen Steves

BARELIGHT is a new collective of writers with teeth; writers who search in the darkest corners. 

Started by Ashley Rose Wellman, John Allis, and myself, BARELIGHT is a support group for like-minded individuals. In the next few months, we will be accepting submissions for writers who want to receive feedback on new work, brainstorm new ideas, develop pitches, etc.

FRESH PAINT by Ellen Steves

It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do. 

since moving from nyc, i've been spending a lot of time reflecting on what it means to begin again. Sometimes it's in frustration, sometimes in joy.

the scratches in our coffee tables will always be there. 

it's never too late to start something new. 

echo park. by Ellen Steves

rob and i just moved to echo park, and holy moly is it beautiful. also full of crazy people. moving to los angeles has been really rewarding. difficult, definitely difficult, but we have both really taken to the city. it's been so great to reconnect with old friends, and make new ones!

we have gotten two parking tickets. 

for the first time in our seven year relationship, rob and i are living alone! and trust me, we are walking to the bathroom naked. 

we don't know exactly where this new chapter of our lives will lead, but we are excited to find out!
