Since we have such a talented year, and it’s been a while since the department did anything to showcase graduating writers, I thought we should reinstate the Grad Reading.
I envision it as being a three (or more, depending on how much interest we get) part reading, with each date showcasing a combination of genres.
It would take place in late March-early April, and would probably happen somewhere on campus (but we can decorate, to make it look swanky!).
If you’re graduating in 2011, and would be interested in reading, send me (Michelle) an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Myself and Will will be visiting 4th-year workshops in the next few weeks as well.
Hope to hear from you soon!
