Calliope Reading 2017

Andrea | April 25th, 2017

Calliope, WVU’s undergraduate lit mag, launched their 2017 issue with a reading in a packed Colson 130. Editor-in-Chief Mitchell Glazier welcomed contributors, faculty, family, and friends before handing things off to the readers.

First were the poets, who read of the unspeakable, of Mother’s shoes, of a hairdresser’s compliment, of paint on walls and paint on fingernails, and much more.

Next came three prose readers, all immersing the audience in vastly different worlds: a supermarket where a young woman hands out samples to customers who struggle to understand what a chicken patty is…a couple’s boat ride out on the open sea…and an unexplored planet covered in water, which, as we know, means life is not far behind.

After the reading, contributors and guests stayed and mingled to congratulate each other, discuss their favorite lines and pieces from the evening, and, of course, eat cookies.

Congratulations, contributors!
