"Strangers Gate Revisited"
A Workshop & Collaborative Gallery Event
In the spring of 2015, author and creator of Monologging.org, Jeffrey F. Barken launched his novel All the Lonely Boys in New York with a spectacular pop-up gallery event in Manhattan. The gallery featured original prints (inspired by Barken's fiction) by Oakland-based artist, Dara Lorenzo and made in collaboration with Irish artist, Diana Muller.
"Strangers Gate Revisited" will be the fourth showing of this unique collection.
"Strangers Gate" sets the stage for a fantastic workshop discussion concerning multimedia collaborations and the current state of indie and traditional publishing. Join us Saturday, Nov. 11th 2PM-6:30PM at the Weehawken Writers and Artist's Studio, for a workshop led by Rights Factory Literary Agent Natalie Kimber and Jeffrey F. Barken.
- Examples of great collaborations & how to begin your own.
- Moderating perfectionism and the desire to control outcomes.
- The value of collaborations in terms of networking and platform building. For those writers pursuing traditional publishing deals, are collaborative multimedia projects the best advertisement for your work?
- At what point is an author ready to collaborate and when should their work stand alone?
Dara Lorenzo, will reflect on her experiences collaborating with Barken.
*A question and answer period is included in the program, and participants will also have an opportunity to pitch projects as well as consult individually with Kimber and Barken.
Participation is limited to 15 persons.

*About the Artist:
Dara Lorenzo's artistic process manipulates photographs with various printmaking techniques, smudging disparate colors and accentuating noir details. A second layer melds graffiti elements with Muller's original ink stamps, rendering the canvas a detailed map that underlies the pace and plot of All The Lonely Boys in NY.
