Working Dog kicks off 2011-2012 season

After more than a decade, University of Utah English Department graduate students are still offering sneak peaks at the next generation of Utah writers. And you can be part of the experience. ---

The 2011-2012 "Working Dog" creative writing series kicks off tonight (Sept. 22) at the Art Barn (1325 E. 100 South) at 7 p.m. Over the course of eight months, U of U grad students will offer brief free-to-the-public readings of new works of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. Each program -- with the exception of October's "rapid-fire" program -- features four 15-minute readings. The title came from an attempt to convey the solitary, generally unseen work of writers, with these readings a rare opportunity for these dogs to have their day, in an environment that was supportive rather than competitive. The series is a co-production of the U of U English Department and the Salt Lake Arts Council

Specific participating writers are not identified in press materials -- so the sense of discovery could be even more exciting.
