We had a great first reading at the Student Center last Thursday night. We were fortunate to have three talented featured readers share their work. Paige Zubel was first up to read two short fiction pieces. She was followed by poet Braden Root, who often uses locations in his poetry. Our last reader was Janise Scott, who shared an excerpt from her very intriguing story about an archangel trying to do his job serving the Almighty amidst a collective group of angels and deities.
The following open mic session brought out some talented writers from our UH student body, including both fiction writers and poets. Cupcakes and soda were enjoyed and merchandise was available for purchase. Thanks to everyone generous and brave enough to share their work with us. We hope to have you again at our next reading, and be sure to bring your fellow writers to share their work as well.
If you made it to the event last week, thank you so much for attending. If you missed it, fear not! Just remember that the next reading is scheduled for October 27th at the A.D. Bruce Religion Center, next to Roy Cullen, at 7 pm. Again, we will have three featured readers followed by an open mic. Be sure to spread the word about these events, and to submit to the magazine by the October 15th deadline.
