Pointed Circle Issue 34 Release Party & Open Mic – June 11 and June 13 – Cascade Campus

Justin Rigamonti

Students have recently finished Issue 34 of the Pointed Circle (Cascade Campus’s literary magazine), and it’s gorgeous (pictured below), and they’d like to read with and for you as we celebrate the release of the magazine and the end of spring term. pointed
There will be two events this week:
On Monday, June 11, in Terrell Hall 122 on the Cascade Campus, we’ll have an open mic followed by an editor reading. The open mic sign-up will be from 6:45-7, and the open mic reading will be from 7-7:30/45 (depending on the number of readers). We’d love to have your students read a short piece they’ve written this year (3 to 5 minutes)! After the open mic is over, the Pointed Circle Editors will read from the projects they’ve been working on/their new work. We’ll have La Croix and cookies. Any PCC student is welcome to read.
Then, on June 13th, we’ll have the Pointed Circle Issue 34 Release Party. The party will start at 6:30 pm at Mother Foucault’s Bookshop at 523 SE Morrison St, Portland, OR 97214. We’ve invited poets published in this issue of the Pointed Circle to read their work, and they will do that from about 7 to 8. A limited number of copies of the magazine will be available for people who come to the reading, a sliding scale price. Following the release reading, we’ll have an afterparty at the Independent Publishing Resource Center, IPRC, a few blocks from Mother Foucault’s, starting at 9. There’ll be kombucha and pizza and conversation and relaxation.
Please invite your students!
