Poetry and Fiction at Prairie Margins Reception

Posted by bgsuenglish on August 28, 2007

The staff of Prairie Margins, the undergraduate literary magazine, invite you to join them for an open mic and welcoming reception this Thursday at 7:30 in Prout Chapel. Offered as part of the Creative Writing Program Reading Series, the event offers members of the BGSU writing community a chance to share their work while enjoying the fun and camaraderie of the creative writing program.

Prairie Margins faculty advisor Karen Craigo reminds us that:

An open mic is not a full-scale reading, of course, but rather a taste of what we’ve been up to recently in our writing lives. Please come prepared to read only a page or two. That’s easy for most poets, but fiction writers should come armed with either a work of ‘sudden fiction’ (very short prose) or a favorite excerpt. An excerpt that showcases your language and your style is an ideal choice.

Contributors to the 2007 edition of Prairie Margins are especially encouraged to read their work, either that which is in the issue itself or something brand new. Refreshments will be provided, and copies of the newest issue of Prairie Margins will be distributed to all in attendance. You will also learn how you can get involved with BGSU’s own national, undergraduate literary journal as it readies its 2008 edition.
