Call for Readers: NEWS Reading Series

The N•E•W•S is back!

Our literary community-building effort had a successful year: six evenings of strong poetry, fiction, and nonfiction by up-and-coming writers in their genre. We enjoyed work from more than 40 writers, including Charles M. Boyer, Kara Provost, Jarita Davis, Lauren Barnholdt, Colleen Michaels, and many others.

If you missed it, you missed out! Now we’re back for Round Three. We are looking for more writers ready to present their material in public. Fiction, poetry, personal essay—all forms are welcome. Each reader will have 15 minutes to share their work with the audience, so you could read a couple of short pieces or an excerpt from a longer work.

The dates for the spring series are as follows:

*Sunday, March 9
Mixed Bag—all genres, all styles: fiction, nonfiction, & poetry

*Sunday, April 6
Poetry Extravaganza

*both events begin at 4 p.m.*
Where: The Regent Theatre screening room?
7 MedfordStreet, Arlington

Shindig immediately following:
The Book Rack
13 Medford Street, Arlington

We can promise a fun afternoon filled with food, good company, and good cheer. You bring the good writing.

If you are interested in participating, or would like more information, contact either of us via e-mail ( or the Web site ( We’d also love it if you could start spreading the NEWS to fellow writers.

Hope to see you at an event!
