Summer Shorts 2014

Summer Shorts, a collaborative project that brought local artists and writers together for a screening and reading of the short form, was a success! Our first attempt at resurrecting the screen found in Heather’s garage, we had a nice turn out and were very moved by the work that was submitted. Can’t wait to see…
