Helena Showcase: Fiction, Nonfiction & Poetry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A Helena Showcase: A gathering of writers from Helena during which we wish to exhibit the vibrant writing scene that exists here. In Helena, and at Carroll College, there exists an energetic writing community rife with individuals publishing regionally, nationally, and internationally. Many literary events are held throughout the year in local museums, campuses, libraries, parks, breweries and bars--all well attended by fans and readers of literature. Join us for this 90-minute panel, with each member reading 10-12 minutes preceded by a briefer overview of the Helena scene by the moderator, followed by a 10-15 minute Q&A.
