This bimonthly reading series is intended to prioritize the safety, creativity, and stories of Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Color.
This event will be hosted by Jessica Meza-Torres, Program Assistant for Programs for Writers. The theme this month is “Ghosts.”
Our featured readers are Chris Stuck and Jacqueline Fitzgerald.
After our featured readers, there will be time for a few members of the audience to sign up and share their work. The readings will be followed by a short break and a community discussion.

This event is open to everyone, but only people who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color will be invited to read.
