Come meet the low-residency folks on July 12th at 7

GLS Low-Residency Reading and Reception: Monday, July 12  7:00 pm  
A Meet and Greet for the GLS Community
Did you know that GLS offers a low-residency MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults?  Twice a year, students in this program come from across the nation to the Hamline campus for a 10-day residency full of seminars, workshops, lectures, and readings.  At this summer’s residency (July 8 – 18), faculty, visiting writers, graduating students, and guest editors/publishers will deliver lectures and offer seminars that examine a broad range of issues for writers in the field.  Because these low-residency students and faculty are only on campus for a short time, they rarely get to meet other students in our programs.  But this summer, we're opening the doors and bringing everyone together! 
We’d like to invite all members of the GLS community to a special residency reading and reception on Monday evening, July 12 at 7:00 pm in the Kay Fredericks room, 3rd floor of the Klas Center.  The reading will feature our faculty/authors Ron Koertge, Jane Resh Thomas, Anne Ursu, Lisa Jahn-Clough, and Jackie Briggs-Martin.  A book signing and reception will follow.  We hope you can join us for this special event.  It will be a great way to meet these students and the wonderful faculty who teach in our low-residency program!

These are really great authors with tons of writing experience and books under their belts, not to mention all the great students you've never met.  So come on out and meet them all!
