Hope everyone is still having a great semester. It’s crazy to think that it’s already about half way over. Which means that our next submission deadline is approaching at the end of this month, on October 31st. Make sure to send us your work of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, photography, sculpture, personal essay…whatever creative written or visual art you do! If you’ve got it, we want it. See the submission guidelines below.
The third installment of the Writer’s Workshop Reading Series takes place this evening, Wednesday, October 8th, in the Dodge Room of the Milo Bail Student Center at 7:00. Tonight’s reader will be Sue William Silverman, author of Because I Remember Terror, Father, I Remember You, Love Sick (which has been made into a movie featuring actress Sally Pressman), and her latest memoir, The Pat Boone Fan Club: My Life as an White Anglo-Saxton Jew. Sue is a victim of sexual abuse and sex addiction. While the topic of some of her writing is quite serious, she is very talented at crafting her pieces to be full of wonderful language and strongly written prose. This event will be a memorable one, so make sure you head to the University of Nebraska-Omaha this evening. As always, these events are open to the public and are free for everyone, so bring a friend! Hope to see you all there!
