Hot words on a cold night

On December 2nd, MWSU students, faculty, and alumni joined community members in packing Foster's Martini Bar for the final New Lit Out Loud open-mic reading of the fall semester. We had the widest range of readers ever, ranging from a twelve-year-old poet sharing her first love poem to spoken word artists chanting their poetic calls-to-arms and then all the way to the seemingly immortal Don Sollars, who recited his poems from memory.

The most common comment by everyone was that it was our riches and most diverse reading to date. But, hey, a new year is upon us. Watch for the spring schedule, coming in January. Lit lives!
