This literary show features poetry, stories and editorial readings, author interviews, a local writing-events calendar--The Muse News Cafe--book reviews, word play and lots of great independent music. You are invited to come and be a part of this program! If you can't make it to Guelph, we invite aspiring writers to submit work (written, for us to read, or audio files of you reading your original work) for consideration. The show is produced by Adrian Hoad-Reddick in collaboration with his English and media students. Teachers: let us help you produce an hour-long show with your class!
