Come join us for the final MFA student reading of the semester TONIGHT, DECEMBER 4, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. at O’ROURKE’S PUBLIC HOUSE.

The evening will feature the work of 3 poets and 1 fiction writer:

Jayme Russell received her B.A. in Creative Writing and her M.A. in Poetry from Ohio University.  In 2011, she defended her thesis entitled Real Nightmares under the direction of poet Mark Halliday. She was a finalist for the Black Warrior Review’s 2013 Poetry Prize.

Lynda Letona is an MFA student, Creative Writing Instructor, and collaborator for Letras Latinas at University of Notre Dame. She received her MA in Creative Writing from the University of South Dakota. Her poetry and nonfiction has appeared in Ostrich Review, Liternational, and Hotmetalpress. She is currently working on a collection of poetry titled House of Dark Writings. Part I of the series explores the Spanish conquest of the Mayas through noble princess Anacaída; Part II explores an immigrant saga through DREAM student Lucía. Lynda was raised in Guatemala and California. Her special interests include film, theatre, and multicultural literature.

Christine Texeira, who hails from the magical Pacific Northwest, received her BA in English from Whitman College in 2010. Her fiction involves aspects of magical realism and subtle humor and has been featured in the literary magazines Quarterlife and bluemoon.

Peter Twal’s work has been published in Smoking Glue Gun and DIG Magazine. Pulling from his professional background in electrical engineering, Twal writes pieces that resemble circuitry, poems with lines that interconnect, regulate and trigger other lines or thoughts, either infinitely or to some termination point.

The reading is free and open to the public.

See you there,
Dev ’15
