Spring 2009 Reading Series


Superstition Review hosted its first of two readings for its Spring 2009 Reading Series. The Reading Series began in 2008 with a goal to “form a writing community where students can interact with published authors, and where students can also share their own work,” according to Patricia Murphy, Managing Editor of Superstition Review. On March 16th, authors Cynthia Hogue and Peter Turchi dazzled the audience at ASU’s Polytechnic campus with their poetry and short fiction. Hogue read a group of elegant poems that the audience could relate to well, and Turchi read a comical short story that entertained, as well as enlightened, the audience. Those who missed the reading will be able to enjoy an audio podcast of the event here later this month.

The last reading in the Spring 2009 Reading Series will be held on April 20th at 7:30 p.m. in the Cooley Ballroom of ASU’s Polytechnic campus and will feature student writers from ASU. Students interested in reading their work should e-mail superstitionreview@asu.edu, title it “Student Reading Series,” provide reliable contact information, and paste the work they plan to read in the body of the e-mail. The deadline to submit is April 10th.
The final reading will also be a launch party for the new issue, so be sure to attend.

Readings and Submissions — Keep it coming!

Thanks to everyone who has submitted so far! We have really got some great work coming in, and keep in mind you still have until the end of October to keep submitting your work.  Our editors are keeping very busy and doing a great job of organizing and sorting through submissions so far.

Likewise, we’ve got our second reading in our reading series coming up on Monday, October 13th at 7:30 p.m. Again, it will be hosted in the Cooley Ballroom in the Student Union at the ASU Polytechnic campus. This reading features work by writing faculty from various community colleges. Hope to see you there.

Working up the perdition and drive to complete and finish a piece for submission is among the greatest challenges most writers face. For a lot of early writers, such as Miguel de Cervantes or the Marquis de Sade have used time imprisoned in order to focus on their ideas, which eventually developed into literary classics! Though we all can’t become part of the Western Canon, there are a lot of authors today who still make it big–big screen…

Don’t Forget!

The first of the Superstition Review Reading Series is debuting today, February 25th at the ASU Polytechnic Campus in Cooley Ballroom B, near the Student Union.

The readings start at 3 p.m.and end at 5 p.m.; there is no admission fee, and free refreshments will be provided to anyone who attends.

We look forward to seeing you there!
