I would say that the Gala Winners Reading was a success last night: good turnout, excellent readers, and even some photographic evidence.
Also, here is the list of upcoming events I messed up on:
– March 23/24, AJ 175, In Print Festival 6, with Paul Killebrew, Debra Gwartney, Tina May Hall, and the editors of Artifice Magazine. (AND THE RELEASE OF THE 2011 Broken Plate)
– March 26, Big Car Gallery, Indianapolis, Vouched Presents… with (WC member) Ashley Ford, Nate Pritts, Micah Ling, Drew Blanchard, and Derrick Harriel
– April 19, Cornerstone Center for the Arts, The Creative Writing In The Community Class Reading
Thanks to everyone who came to the reading last night. YOU RULE.
Hope you are having a great break. As we are a mere one week away from the new semester, we wanted to email you to update you on some early semester activities.
We will be meeting the first Tuesday at 8 pm in the Writing Center. We will be sticking to the same time and place as last semester. So hope to see you then.
Also, Vouched Books, founded by Writers Community founder Christopher Newgent, is hosting a reading January 15th in Indianapolis with readings by BSU professor Sean Lovelace, 2010 In Print Visiting Editor Matt Bell, Aaron Burch, and Andy Devine. This reading is going to be stellar, and we are hoping to have as many WC members there as possible. If you are interested in going (and hopefully contributing some gas money) or would like to volunteer to drive, then please let us know accordingly.
Also also, Angie Vanderluit on behalf of Blacklist Promotions, Full Circle Arts Co-Op, is seeking articles, essays, short stories, art, and poetry covering a variety of topics such as Feminism, Equality, and Health for a zine for distribution during Women’s Week in March. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 21st if you are interested.
Also also also, we have signed up to receive 10 free issues of the April issue of Poetry Magazine for a book discussion. We will give these out on a first reply basis in order to have a discussion and help celebrate National Poetry Month. Please let us know asap if you want to be a part of this.
Also also also also, Cathy Day, our BSU professor and good friend of the Writers Community, wanted me to share this link with you all. Some of you had shown interest in going to this year’s AWP Conference, which is a cool idea, and this would help with one of the expenses.
Also also also also also, some of our fellow BSU writers, including WC Officer Elysia Smith, 2010 Gala Winners Layne Ransom and Lindsey LaVal, and the wonderful WC contributor Ashley Ford, have a new group blog called Chick Litz. It is definitely something to check out.
Well, please let us know if you have any suggestions or ideas for Writers Community. We hope to see you very soon.
