VLP Events: Sept. Meeting, Poetry Slams, and a Youth Writing Camp
The Vermillion Literary Project, an award-winning student organization at the U., invites students of any major, undergraduate or graduate, to join. No experience is required, and members can participate in one activity or several. The VLP publishes an annual literary magazine, publishes electronically (via a website, weblog, and podcasts), runs a creative writing camp for high schools students, hosts monthly poetry slams, and holds a three-hour short story contest and other literary events, most of which are open to the general public. And the VLP has a good time doing it. The first meeting of the 2007-08 school year will be held Friday, September 7th, at 4 p.m., in Dakota Hall 201 (English Department, Writing Center). Come and learn more about the VLP!
Of course, the VLP has been busy over the summer. On the last Thursday of each month, they've held poetry slams, competitions for poets, in downtown Vermillion. You can catch the next two VLP poetry slams on Thursday, August 30 and Thursday, September 27, at the Coffee Shop Gallery, 24 W. Main Street, at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome to come and slam, including newbies--prizes are awarded! Poets who plan to slam should bring at least three poems. There will also be a featured reader to start off the event each month. A good time will be had by all. These slams are free and open to the general public.
