Set list (of writers) announced for tonight’s WRUV READER book launch

 We have a wonderful 1o-set of local authors ready to speak at 7 tonight at the book launch of The WRUV Reader, a new publication featuring writers who have read their work on UVM’s radio station, with all proceeds from sales going to media education.

The book is only 10 bucks, kids! At least at tonight’s reading. We can’t vouch for what Amazon will charge.

We have a great set list of fiction writers and poets, students and profs, established and emerging authors. Here they are in the likely order of appearance, with some titles, when available, of what they’re expected to read.

Philip Baruth: The Celebrated Phish Tanks of Burlington, Vermont

David Cavanagh: Selected Poetry

Abby Paige: Selected Poetry

Major Jackson: Selected Poetry

Tina Escaja: Spanish-English & Multimedia Poetry

Nancy Welch speaks of writing, activism and keying into the voice that inspires

UVM professor and prose writer Nancy Welch joined us in the studio on March 18 to talk about the state of student activism and to read her short story, “Havazik.”

Listen to the show.

Read her story.

Welch’s short stories have appeared in Prairie Schooner, Greensboro Review, Threepenny Review and elsewhere, and her collection of stories, The Road from Prosperity, was published by Southern Methodist University Press.

Her latest book, Living Room: Teaching Public Writing in a Privatized World, is a series of essays on the struggle for public writing and public voice in an era of corporate privatization.

She is a professor in the UVM Department of English where she has taught classes in nonfiction and fiction writing, rhetorical theory, and literacy politics for the past 15 years.
