Thatcher, AZ— Eastern Arizona College’s creative writing instructors invite the public to a free event of student poetry and fiction reading on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, at 5 p.m., in room 118 of the AP Building on EAC’s Middle Campus.

Several students who contributed to this year’s Voice 2015 (EAC’s literary magazine) include Selina M. Curley, Yvette Cassadore, Ayanna Blackburn, Monika Ragland, Emily Tapia, Lela Tanner, Robert Hiatt, Manny Gonzales, Codie Duke, Kylie-Jo Soto, Kelani Purvis, and Deidra Hansen. Each student will be reading from their original work.

The creative works range from funny, to deeply moving, to experimental and includes poetry, creative, and non-fiction writing. Copies of the Voice 2015 will be distributed at the event.

“Editing this year’s Voice was a challenge because so many submissions were of high quality. We have some talented and hard-working writers at EAC who are excited about sharing their work,” says English instructor and Voice magazine editor, Laura David. “Past attendees to Voice readings have been surprised and impressed by the quality of the writing, and some have been inspired to enroll in EAC’s creative writing classes themselves.”

Students and community members who attend can gain a taste of the diverse types of writing classes available through EAC’s creative writing program.
