The Working Dog Graduate Student Reading Series provides a formal setting for graduate students to read their work to the general public and their peers. Eight readings are scheduled per school year (four readings per semester). Six readings feature four to five writers, each reading for 15-20 minutes. The two other readings (one per semester) are designated Rapid Fire readings where approximately 16-20 students read for three to five minutes. The Rapid Fire readings have seasonal themes and most students write new work specifically for that event. The Rapid Fire readings also serve as a nonthreatening platform for first time readers. At the beginning of the school year, students sign up for the traditional readings. Priority is given to creative writing students, particularly those students who have not previously read. Sign up for the Rapid Fire events occurs during the week preceding each reading. The readings will take place at the Art Barn on Thursday evenings at 7 pm.
