Night of Songs and Stories
The second Tuesday of each month, the Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild sponsors a Night of Songs and Stories. The evening features original readings (300 words or fewer) by guild members and music by local musicians, Stuart Vining & Amy Felker.
Each month a theme is posted (previous examples include “addiction and obsession” “blue or blues” and “letters” ) and both the writers and musicians write/perform pieces that in some way connect to this theme. A variation of this is when the featured musicians post the titles of five songs that they will perform, with readers signing up to write a short poem, essay, or story that somehow incorporates the song’s title or lyrics into their piece. For example, the Simon and Garfunkle song “The Boxer” prompted one writer to recall a story of his father, who boxed, and another writer to recall the time her husband met—and shook hands with—Muhammad Ali.
Themes are announced one month prior to the event. Readers can sign up by emailing Maribeth at
firstname.lastname@example.org and are accepted on a first-come-first serve basis.
