Tonight! The Writers Community will be hosting its annual Undergraduate Gala Winners Reading. The reading serves as one of the outstanding prizes awarded to Layne Ransom, Lindsey P. LaVal, and Spencer McNelly for winning the top three places at the Undergraduate Writers Gala last fall. The reading will be in Bracken Library, room 104, at 7:30 p.m. Come out and celebrate this great accomplishment of your peers by listening to their work. It’s sure to be a great time, so don’t miss out!
Each year, the Writers’ Community hosts a Gala in which twenty Ball State undergraduates from all disciplines read their works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. The Gala is a competition which produces three winners chosen by judges made up of Ball State creative writing faculty. We congratulate Thomas Dubach, Ashley Ford, and Joseph Samaniego on winning this year’s Gala. In addition to prizes including literary magazines, signed books, and even money, the winners of the Gala are awarded a reading in the spring semester. The 2012 Gala Winners’ reading will take place this evening, April 10, at 7:30 in AJ 175. In honor of this reading and the winners, we have invited each of the three to profile themselves via a short interview. Below is a feature on Ashley Ford, a predominately nonfiction writer.
