The Mark Webster Reading Series presents emerging writers in a warm and relaxed setting. MFA second-year students in fiction and poetry, each introduced by a peer, will share a sample of their work. Friends, family, and members of the Ann Arbor community are welcome to attend the readings both in-person and synchronously on Zoom.

Mollie Traver is a writer and book editor from Vermont. She loves running in the woods, baking bread, and playing Wingspan with her family.
