Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing. The Superstition Review reading series this past Monday, February 25th was an amazing success. The faculty of ASU Polytechnic were gracious enough to read some of their work, which was received with great enthusiasm by the reading series audience.
To make sure that you don’t miss the next set of our reading series, mark your calendar for Monday, March 31st, when the talented writers from the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing will be sharing some of their work with the public. The reading will take place from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m., in Cooley Ballroom B, at the ASU Polytechnic campus. For directions to the campus, please click here.
Also, we’re still looking for students who would like to read some of their work at the third installment of the reading series on Monday, April 28th; if you would be interested in this opportunity, please e-mail us for more information.
Even though it’s only mid-February, the submissions for our May 2008 Inaugural issue are really pouring in. As editors, we have the hard choice of deciding which submissions to publish; a process that is difficult because all of the submissions we’ve received show great talent.
While we have had some notable authors contribute submissions for possible publication, we do anonymous reads on our work, meaning that we don’t know who wrote the piece of work we’re reviewing. This ensures that we publish writing based solely on its merit, and not because we might be partial to a particular author’s work.
Doing anonymous reads are fairly common process in literary magazines, and even more common in literary contests. Pick up a copy of the Poet’s Market 2008 to find out more about the editing and publishing process that goes into creating a literary magazine.
Starting Monday, February 25th, Superstition Review will host the first reading of a three-part series that will introduce the magazine to the public. Each reading will take place on a Monday at the ASU Polytechnic Campus in Cooley Ballroom B, near the Student Union.
The reading series is FREE to the public and will offer refreshments along with an exciting cast of authors.
If you are a student who lives in the Phoenix/Tempe area and you would be interested in reading a piece of your work for the Superstition Review reading series, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our homepage to find out more about the magazine.
