Online literary magazine teams up with produce program for series
November 17, 2008
The Superstition Review, an Arizona State University student-run online literary magazine, is continuing its popular reading series this fall, with remaining readings scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Oct. 13 and Nov. 17, at the Polytechnic campus.
According to the reading series editor Sarah Snyder, there is an added bonus this semester. “We are collaborating with the Poly CSA, which is donating locally grown produce,” said Snyder. “Cassie Tolman, one of our former student editors, is also a professional chef and will be preparing refreshments for the readings.”
The October reading will feature creative writing faculty from local community colleges, including Lois Roma-Deeley from Paradise Valley Community College, Josh Rothkamp from Mesa Community College, Hershman John from Phoenix College, and Patrick Flynn from Chandler-Gilbert Community College.
The November reading will feature the students of the creative writing programs at ASU.
Also new this semester, the Superstition Review is encouraging high school students to attend the readings, hoping to help promote creative writing at Arizona State University.
“The Superstition Review realizes that the more we can reach out to local high school students, the more we can excite and encourage them to be college students,” said Snyder.
The reading series is free to the public, and promotes a family-friendly atmosphere. Try something different on a Monday and enjoy organic, locally-grown appetizers while the emerging and established talent exhibited in ASU Polytechnic’s Superstition Review Reading Series delight you with their written works.
