This upcoming Tuesday, December 1st, we will be having the last “Writers at Newark” reading of the semester. This will be a particularly warm reading with two writers that are great friends to the Rutgers-Newark community, James Hoch and Patricia Smith. James Hoch was a writer in residence at Rutgers last year, and the poetry students under his care raved about his teaching. Patricia Smith also visited campus last year after helping Saeed Jones’ Composition 102 class out with a live poetry reading.
Finally, there will be an MFA open house prior to the reading, so if you are considering coming to the program please check that out. The event is located in the Paul Robeson Gallery, with the open house starting at 1 and the reading beginning at 5:30.
