I would say that the Gala Winners Reading was a success last night: good turnout, excellent readers, and even some photographic evidence.

Two Writers Community-Related Readings

1. As part of the BSU and University of Alabama Creative Writing Exchange, we are hosting Alabama faculty and writer, Brian Oliu, and a group of University of Alabama undergraduate writers. An exciting aspect of their visit is an opportunity to publicly read original poems, stories, and essays.

Tuesday, February 22nd at 7:30 pm, Bracken Library room 104. Refreshments will be served.

2. As part of their prize for winning last fall’s Undergraduate Writers Gala, Layne Ransom, Lindsey P. LaVal, and Spencer McNelly will each have to the opportunity to read for 10-15 minutes.

Tuesday, March 1st at 7:30 pm, Bracken Library room 104.

Please, come out and support these awesome writers and the Writers Community.

The Jackalope Wars Chapbook Release Reading

Wednesday at 7 pm at Village Green Records
A Release Reading For Jeremy Bauer’s Chapbook The Jackalope Wars
Readings by Jeremy Bauer, Tyler Gobble, and Lindsey P LaVal; Hosted by Layne Ransom


Hey Writers,

Next Tuesday, instead of our super cool weekly meetings, we’ll be hosting The Matt Hart/Michael Meyerhofer Poetry Reading at Bracken Library Room 104 at 7:30. Matt has a new book out, which I’m sure is stellar and Michael is always a fun guy. Also, a soon-soon-soon-to-be-announced Writers Community member will be opening for them.

Also, the following Wednesday, there will be a reading at Village Green Records at 7 pm to celebrate the release of Jeremy Bauer’s chapbook, The Jackalope Wars. Lindsey LaVal and Tyler Gobble (THATS ME) will be reading as well.

Please come to these readings, see some cool readers, pick up some awesome books, support The Writers Community.

I’m gonna get awkward and point you, dear reader, in my direction. Mike Young has come up several times during our meetings, so I wanted to let you know that I have a new post (interview, review, special piece) with Mike Young up at Smalldoggies Magazine. Check it out.
