Wanted: Readers for fall reading series

September 12, 2007

The N•E•W•S is back!

Our literary community-building effort got off with a bang this past spring: three evenings of strong poetry, fiction, and nonfiction by up-and-coming writers in their genre. We enjoyed work from more than 20 writers, including Charles M. Boyer, Kara Provost, Emmuella Morris, and many others.

If you missed it, you missed out! Now we’re back for Round Two.

We are looking for more writers ready to present their material in public. Fiction, poetry, personal essay—all forms are welcome. Each reader will have 15 minutes to share their work with the audience, so you could read a couple of short pieces or an excerpt from a longer work.

The dates for the fall series are as follows:

*Sunday, September 30     Mixed Bag—all genres, all styles: fiction, nonfiction, & poetry
*Sunday, October 21          Poetry Extravaganza
*Sunday, November 11      Focus on Fiction

*all events begin at 4 p.m.*

Where: The Regent Theatre screening room
7 Medford Street, Arlington

Shindig immediately following:
The Book Rack
13 Medford Street, Arlington

We can promise a fun afternoon filled with food, good company, and good cheer. You bring the good writing.

If you are interested in participating, or would like more information, contact either of us via e-mail or the Web site. We’d also love it if you could start spreading the NEWS to fellow writers.

Hope to see you at an event!
