The Mark Webster Reading Series: Sara Tewelde (Fiction), Diepreye (Poetry)  

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. 

Sara Tewelde is a writer from West Philadelphia. She is the world's foremost Sailor Moon aficionado of East-African descent.

Diepreye is a Nigerian-American poet from Charlotte, North Carolina. She holds a BA in English and Comparative Literature from UNC-Chapel Hill and is currently an MFA candidate in Poetry in the Helen Zell Writers’ Program at the University of Michigan. Her poems appear in the Academy of American Poets, Up the Staircase Quarterly, The Rising Phoenix Review, and elsewhere. She is a 2022 Best New Poets nominee.
