Two Creative Writing Events at GCC in PHX!

Dear Faculty and Friends of Creative Writing,

We are pleased to announce two upcoming events
NUMBER ONE:  The Second Saturday Workshops Series: Telling Stories
This  workshop is suitable for anyone who is interested in creating compelling stories. The workshop is free, requires no registration, and is open to students and the general public.
It will be held on Saturday morning, Sept 14th from 9:00-11:00 in room LA141, at Glendale Community College (Dunlap/Olive Ave), and is being offered by our very own Dr.Virgil Mathes, writer, Harley rider, and dueling aficionado extraordinaire, so I really, really would make every effort to come out and support him.
Second Saturday Workshops: sometimes there’s poetry, sometimes there’s prose, sometimes there’s coffee and doughnuts, and sometimes there’s trouble
NUMBER TWO:  Free Association Open Mic Poetry Series

featuring Jia Oak Baker & David Chorlton

Wednesday September 18th in the GCC Student Union

FREE and open to the public

open mic starts at 7pm
