Come meet some of our key faculty ( and moi ) in the Professional Creative Writing MA program at University College on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. The Open House will be at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, 2344 East Iliff Avenue, Denver, CO 80210. [View Map] We’ll convene in the Williams Recital Salon … enjoy some readings, presentations, banter … and afterward—drinks and snacks. The Open House is free and so is the parking, but we do ask you to register so we can be sure to have enough food and drink on hand. To register, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/professional-creative-writing-open-house-tickets-42911021019?aff=ehomecard. Readers will represent all four major genres—Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, Poetry, and Drama—and will include: Emily Vizzo. A poet, essayist, and translator, Emily will be coming all the way from California to join us! https://www.emilyvizzo.com/ Jennifer Zukowski.

Tim’s new poetry collection, Linthead Stomp (per Kent Weigle writing in Rain Taxi) “rails against the pigheaded ways of small town Appalachia, its shortsighted religion and ignorance, yet … elegizes dead friends and family while capturing the beauty of a dying realm.” http://www.timearley.net/ Brian Laidlaw. Brian’s books include Amoratorium (Paper Darts Press) and The Stuntman (Milkweed Editions), each of which includes a companion album of original music. A follow-up collection called The Mirrormaker is forthcoming from Milkweed later this year. http://www.brianlaidlaw.com/ Linda Sanders.
