Antioch University Los Angeles held its Fall Literary Uprising on October 30, 2018. Each quarter, creative writers from the BA in Liberal Studies program, MFA in Creative Writing program, a faculty member, and an SMC creative writing student, read from their latest works. For this Literary Uprising, a fifth reader was added from Two Hawks Quarterly, the literary journal from the BA in Liberal Studies Program.
AULA was proud to have the following readers: Raphael Dirani an international student and a recent graduate of the Applied Arts and media degree; Lituo Huang, a writer from Jim Krusoe’s SMC Advanced Fiction Class; Nick Wenzel, Two Hawks Quarterly intern; Adrian Ernesto Cepeda MFA alum and author of the newly released poetry collection Flashes and Verses; and Terry Wolverton, faculty author of the recently released Ruin Porn. Terry was very involved with The women’s building in Los Angeles, an important Feminist site, and wrote a book about its history-Insurgent Muse: Life and Art at the Woman’s Building.
“The most recent Literary Uprising was a wonderful evening, where current students, faculty and staff, alums, students from Jim Krusoe’s Advanced Fiction class at SMC, and guests got to mingle, eat food, drink wine, and listen to an amazing, diverse group of readers,” said organizer Alistair McCartney. “As always, it gave us a chance to come together and experience the community and creative connections here. The evening couldn’t have happened without our wonderful Two Hawks Quarterly interns.”
The event is always free and open for all to attend.
