Do you like newly published chapbooks brimming with hilarious and
astounding work by young people? Do you like student readings? How

talking, and feeling inspired? Are you wondering when we’ll stop
asking you questions?

Please, oh-won’t-you-please join us Monday night at our Open House? If
you haven’t been to our new space, it’s a good excuse to check it out.
It’s also a good excuse to: talk to us about our programs; give
feedback; ask questions; meet our students, staff, volunteers, and

single ladybug climbing on the wall was a vortex, spiraling in front
of her dazzled eyes,” and “It was Lucky Charms day, and his mom gave
him stinking Cocoa Puffs. He hated Cocoa Puffs. They looked like
little rabbit poops. What’s grosser than poop? That’s right. Nothing.”

Hope to see you Monday night at 7pm!
