Invisible Podcast Radio and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) team up for a series of workshops led by local artists and entrepreneurs. Workshops will meet twice monthly at Nichols Tower.
Imani Josey is a writer from Chicago, Illinois. In her previous life, she was a cheerleader for the Chicago Bulls and won the titles of Miss Chicago and Miss Cook County for the Miss America Organization, as well as Miss Black Illinois USA.
Her one-act play, Grace, was produced by Pegasus Players Theatre Chicago after winning the 19th Annual Young Playwrights Festival. In recent years, she has turned her sights to long-form fiction. The Blazing Star is her debut novel, and received an honorable mention in the North Street Book Prize. Its sequel, The Falling Star, is slated for late 2019 publication.
This series represents a partnership between SAIC and Invisible Podcast Radio, a platform for supporting Chicago artists by showcasing their craft, ambition and identity in the arts sphere. The IPR x SAIC Visiting Artist Series will be facilitated by Invisible Podcast Radio (soundcloud.com/invisiblepodcastradio).
