Speed Dating / Speed Reading



Here’s an idea for a reading event:

There are an equal number of readers/writers and listeners/audience members.

Each writer gets five minutes with an individual listener, or a tiny group of listeners.

They read some work and perhaps answer a question or two (which could be prepared by the listener, prepared ahead of time by the organizer, or by the other writers – perhaps each listener is given the same question to ask different writers).

The bell rings and the listeners move on to a different writer.

Repeat as necessary.

At the end, there can be a group discussion / panel with comments and questions provided by all.
