Thatcher, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s creative writing instructors invite the public to a free event of student poetry and fiction reading on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, at 7 p.m., in the Gila/Galiuro Room of the EAC Activities Center.

Several students who contributed to this year’s

(EAC’s literary magazine) will be reading their original works. These include poetry, fiction, and non-fiction on a variety of topics written during the current academic year in Dr. Marilyn Wilton’s Short Story Writing and Independent Fiction Writing classes, as well as in Ken Raines’s Poetry Writing class.

“A hand-crafted rug, a fish, a dark inner monologue, an unusual love story, and an anniversary celebration unlike any you’ve ever heard of: these represent just a sampling of the diverse subjects and modes explored by EAC’s creative writers this year,” states Dr. Marilyn Wilton, host of the event. “We’d like to invite the public and all EAC students, faculty, and staff to attend our Student Poetry and Fiction Reading to enjoy this celebration of student creativity.”

Students and prospective students who attend can gain a taste of the diverse types of writing classes available through EAC’s creative writing program. Light refreshments will be served.
