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:

Rebecca Jamieson's writing has appeared in various publications, including Lion's Roar, Calyx, and Stirring. Her chapbook of poetry, The Body of All Things, was published by Finishing Line Press in 2017. A longtime student of meditation, Rebecca teaches Mindful Writing classes locally and online. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Writing & Publishing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Nicholas Howard is a native of North Attleboro, MA, a graduate of Stonehill College, and a current candidate for a MFA in the Writing & Publishing program at Vermont College of Fine Arts. He is working towards a thesis of original work composed of poetry, creative non-fiction, hybrid pieces, and possibly a craft essay. He reads creative non-fiction submissions for the literary journal Hunger Mountain. He has been published in print in Stonehill’s journal for student work the Cairn and the College’s Alumni Magazine. His words have appeared digitally on the website for the Warwick Beacon and the blog for the Flynn Center for Performing Arts in Burlington, VT. He enjoys performing his poetry at open mics and tries to live by the rule “listen more, waste less.”
