MFA in Writing & Publishing students from VCFA are hosting a poetry reading in our community room.
Community members are welcome to share their own writing during the night's open mic portion, and all participants will be treated to a coupon for the Co-op's hot bar.
This is a family friendly event, free and open to the public. Please bear this in mind while selecting work to share! Both poetry and prose are welcome.
Featured readers will be:
