TAMPA Florida, February 9 - The University of South Florida’s English Department is pleased to announce that the spring 2018 installment of its 6X6 Reading Series, themed “Animalistic,” will take place at Felicitous Coffee and Tea on Friday, February 23 at 7:00pm. Felicitous Coffee and Tea is located at 14204 N 42nd Street, Tampa, FL 33613. This event is free and open to the public.
"6x6 is where worlds collide," says event co-coordinator and third year MFA fiction candidate Alexander Cendrowski, "Undergraduate and graduate, animal and human, literature and performance. It's a great opportunity for USF's strong creative writing community to come together and share their art with the public."
Tampa’s local writing community will gather for a night of readings. Six undergraduate and six graduate students from USF will each present up to six minutes of creative writing including fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction related to the Animalistic theme.
Felicitous Coffee and Tea is a favorite study spot for creative writing students, and has hosted several 6X6 readings.
“Our theme "Animalistic" has encouraged a wide variety of submissions,” says Erika Staiger, 6X6 co-coordinator and second year MFA in fiction. “In addition to bringing together graduate and undergraduate students, 6x6 brings together readers across genres. We hope to have something for everyone, and that includes the food. Felicitous always has a wide variety of snacks and drinks, including many vegan options.”
