Students of the Goddard College MFA in Creative Writing program in Port Townsend present the third in a series of student-run readings. Join us for an evening of literature and friendship with live readings of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and dramatic writing by students and alumni.
Featured reader: Anna Bálint.
This event is all ages and open to the public. | There will be a cash bar. | Admission is free.
The evening will include work by ten authors. Another reading will take place later in the year to accommodate the popularity of the reading series. We hope to see you at both!
