Mark Webster Reading Series

One MFA student of fiction and one of poetry, each introduced by a peer, will read their work. The Mark Webster Reading Series presents emerging writers in a warm and relaxed setting. We encourage you to bring your friends - a Webster reading makes for an enjoyable and enlightening Friday evening.

This week's reading features Laura Preston and Leah Xue.

Laura Preston is a writer and painter from New Jersey. She is the recipient of the Hopwood Award for Nonfiction, the John Wagner Prize, and the Chamberlain Award for Creative Writing. In addition to pursuing her MFA at the University of Michigan, she is the Associate Editor of A Public Space.

Leah lives in Ypsilanti with her dog, Poopy. Poopy is a Taurus/Aries sun sign, and Leah would love to manifest her inner utopia in the outer world, but believes contradictions may have already presented themselves.
