Upcoming event for Creative Writing department
By Greg Waldock, Staff Writer
On Thursday, November 17, the Douglas College Creative Writing department will host Writers Unplugged, a special reading to showcase student writers. It will feature some of the best short stories, poems, and writing from other genres that Douglas students have made this semester so far, read by the students who wrote them. The event will also have an open mic for anyone who wants to share their work. Also appearing will be special guest Kevin Spenst, a published poet from Surrey and author of Ignite and Jabbering with Bing Bong.
The event will help promote involvement in the local arts by introducing students to the world of public performance, and giving the aspiring writers an audience to help refine and receive feedback for their style. It’s an open invitation for 7:30 p.m. in the employee lunch room next to the downstairs café at the New Westminster campus. Everyone is welcome to come for snacks, coffee, and talent that is so local, you’ve probably bumped into them in the halls!
