September flywheel!

filling Station magazine presents:

The September flywheel Reading!

Readings by:

Luke Devlin
Jim Nason
Felicia Pacentrilli
Sabo


… and hosted by Mark Hopkins

Thursday, September 14 – 7:00 pm
McNally Robinson – 120 8th Ave SW


flywheel’s fall season begins with a daring mix of prose and poetry! Coming all the way from Toronto, author Jim Nason joins Luke Devlin (University of Calgary creative writing program), Felicia Pacentrilli (editor of NōD Magazine), and Sabo (Calgary Slam Team) in an intimate reading that will blow you away.

Come for the literature and stay for the conversation!

Every month since November 2003, filling Station magazine's flywheel reading series has brought poetry, prose, music, lectures and performance to the heart of downtown Calgary. It is a place for first-time readers to share the stage with professional authors, for Calgary audiences to see their favourite writers alongside the next generation of literary superstars.

Next flywheel: October 17, 2006

So maybe I'm an idiot, but at this "flywheel" do people from the 'general public' get an opportunity to read their short stories?

flywheel isn't an open mic; all of the readers are invited ahead of time. However, the best way to be invited is to say "Hey Mark, I'd love to do a flywheel sometime!" and then I'll respond with something like "Great!" and all will be merry and good.

If you or someone you know is interested, my contact info is in the above post and, well, pretty much all over this blog.
