This Thursday night at 9pm, Skidmore News and Folio will be teaming up to bring you “Speakeasy,” an evening of student readings in Wilson Chapel. Is your heart heavy with forlornness over that best friend you’ve been crushing on since your “Can Literature Save the Environment?” Scribner Seminar with whom it will simply never ever be? Then sign up to read that poem you wrote about him/her and invite him/her to the reading! This is the chance you’ve been waiting for! There’s less than two months in the semester! It can be something like this really shitty movie.
Or if you’d like to sit, listen, laugh, sob, and maybe roll your eyes when appropriate, that’s great too! Real talk, this is a great opportunity. For creative writers, there’s approximately zero opportunities to read original work of any sort (we all know no one goes to Lively Lucy’s Open Mics for anything besides Bon Iver covers anyway), so there should be lots of good shit coming to the surface from your peers. Plus there will be refreshments as well!
If you’re interested in reading some original work, contact Cara Dempsey at firstname.lastname@example.org or Nicole Smith at email@example.com with your name, contact info, and a 2-3 sentence bio. They ask that all readings be under 5 minutes long, so make sure you time that shit and don’t be that guy who goes on and on. I don’t care if you’re this generation’s Toni Morrison: I’m a millennial and my attention span is the length of a fucking millipede.
