Northwest Boulevard, EWU’s undergraduate literary magazine, is hosting another “Blue Note” Feb. 6, 6 p.m., at the Empyrean coffee shop in downtown Spokane. At the gathering, EWU students will read their work in front of an audience. Following the event, the Creative Writing Department will host a Voice Over where graduate students will read their stories and poems. The second reading starts at 7:30 p.m.
For those unfamiliar with the Empyrean, the downtown coffee shop serves food and beverages and hosts live bands in the front room and readings in the back room. The Empyrean also displays a variety of local artwork on the walls. There’s no cover for the upcoming event.
Northwest Boulevard offers students the chance to submit poetry, fiction or nonfiction writing throughout the school year. Whatever you’re passionate about, they want to read it, and possibly publish your work in the yearly journal. But for now, you can stop by the Empyrean on Feb. 6 for coffee, drinks and an outflow of creativity. In addition to student readings, faculty member and published author Rachel Toor will read excerpts from her new book, “Personal Record: A Love Affair with Running.”
If you want to submit material to the magazine, you can send electronic submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
