we want YOU to read your poetry or prose!

Here's your chance to share your writing with your fellow students. The club is sponsoring an Open Reading on Tuesday, April 28 from 5-6:30 pm in the Writing Studio (yes, we are basically taking over the place for the entire day!!).

If you're interested in reading, email me or Cassie and we'll put you on the list. Bring a poem, a short (3-5 minute) piece of prose, or monologue--anything you have written yourself! Please encourage your friends and classmates to join us, too. Writers can also sign up at the beginning of the reading, if necessary.

Hope to see you there!
