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.
