I want to give props to someone who has really benefited the writing community in central, PA. Ally Bishop, a student in the Graduate Creative Writing Program of Wilkes University, has taken it upon herself to start a reading series. The reading series, OutLoudLit, is held every few months at The Gallerie, located at 13 E. Main Street in Mechanicsburg. The reading series features current students, alums, and faculty from the Wilkes program. Bishop has managed to pull together writers from all genres and provided them with a unique opportunity to share their work.
The next reading will be held on Saturday, Dec. 11 at 2 p.m. at The Gallerie. I will be one of the readers at the event, and I’m eager to share the stage with other writers whose work I’ve enjoyed reading or listening to through the Wilkes program. This event is free and open to the public.
To learn more about the program, check out this article written by Wilkes alum Lori Myers, who will also read at the event next Saturday.
