CalArts Writers Showcase

CalArts Writers Showcase

Next Words is a reading series and publication produced by CalArts featuring its graduating Creative Writing MFAs. Taking place in the spring at venues across Los Angeles—bookstores, art spaces, and even a former City Hall—it culminates in a final showcase at REDCAT. This year's anthology, entitled Running Moon, will also be available for purchase—a selection of fiction, poetry, nonfiction and hybrid genres curated and edited by the students. 

Followed by a reception, the showcase offers an opportunity to experience work that is uniquely CalArts—the results of a writing programme housed within an art school.

This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required due to limited seating. Call the REDCAT box office to make your reservation at     213-237-2800.
