Slinging Ink @ Big Star Bar: Spring 2012
Join us at Slinging Ink at Big Star Bar, a war of words in which writings were submitted about a given theme.
This round’s theme:
Babysitting for Fun and Profit
May 8, 2012
Big Star Bar
1005 West 19th St.
Houston, TX 77008
The selected winner will receive $100! $100!
Stories and more – both true and imagined – from all the points of view of the babysitting experience: the parent, the babysitter, or the babysat. Jockeying for an in-demand sitter on date-night, or coming home to a house in turmoil. Making mad stacks as a pre-teen, raiding the fridge, or finding out what it takes to put the brats to bed. Testing limits, exploring mischief while free of ordinary restraint, or even falling in love. As we know, babysitters may be adept or inept; they may be kind or cruel.
A review panel consisting of Hank Hancock, Kate Schmitt and Kyle Henricks chose 4 entries to be read live from the submitted writings. (Click here
for more info about the panel.) The audience will select a winner from the following writers who will walk away with the $100 prize:
Brook Bailey, Gaelan
Muted Orbz, No Babies, No Sitting
Kelly Switzer, Zoo Torture
Cory Garcia, The Home of My Dreams
