The English Department Writer's Reading Series

A monthly reading of original creative writing by faculty members and students.

The oral tradition of storytelling and the reading of poetry is essential to the healthy development and well-being of our students. Our monthly readings provide students access to poets and writers so that they may be inspired to continue to write, and so that they may connect to the larger web of writers in their local community and beyond.

Watch bulletin boards and announcements for reading dates.

Contact Amy Antongiovanni (AntongiovanniAm@butte.edu) for more information.

 


GROUPS:
The Literary Arts Club

The Literary Arts Club is dedicated to making the literary world accessible for any and all who wish to participate. We believe that involvement with and exposure to the literary arts creates more compassionate, successful, engaged citizens. We also believe that everyone has a story to tell and that everyone can be inspired. With this in mind, we’re committed to using digital tools to create a community of readers and writers, to provide forums for a variety of voices, styles, and perspectives, and to publish and promote works of literary excellence.

We hope to achieve these goals by supporting local literary events, such as the Butte College Reading Series and the Wordfire creative writing conference (buttewordfire.org), and by promoting literacy and writing within our community and across generations through writing workshops and reading groups. Additionally, LAC members have the opportunity to collaborate with the larger literary community through editing and publishing internships, including internships with The Haberdasher and Floodplane.

For more information on the Literary Arts Club, please contact the club’s faculty advisor, Jen White, at whiteje@butte.edu

 


The Haberdasher

The Haberdasher is an online resource for creative writers, which publishes essays on craft, tips on techniques, reviews of literary works, and interviews on craft and the business of publishing with authors and editors. Floodplane, a digital literary journal, highlights the best work of new, emerging, and established writing talent in poetry, fiction, narrative nonfiction, and drama. In working with these publications, selected members of the Literary Arts Club can gain experience in technical and creative writing, as well as literary editing, design, and publicity, while furthering the club’s goal of keeping the written word alive, whether through poetry, song, script, essay, or story.
