My holiday break was filled to the brim with friends and family, great food, and lots of reading. Now I'm re-charged to begin the spring semester teaching writing at SMSU.
To get 2012 rolling on a creative high note, plan to stop by the SMSU Poetry Slam hosted by Nick White, a creative writing major at SMSU, this Thursday, Jan. 5, 7:30 p.m. at The Daily Grind, 316 W. Main Street, Marshall, Minnesota.
Last semester when Nick initiated the Poetry Slam nights at The Daily Grind, he packed the seats by featuring talented student slam poets and by opening the mic to student poets ready to go public with their work. I hope to see you there on Thursday either as a performer or audience member. Thank you for supporting the arts and joining the big dance!
