Watch the 2019 YEW Interns discuss why writing is important to them, why the MWC is important, and why they wanted to participate in YEW (video by Jeff Moore)

One of the best readings of the year in the QC is coming this Thursday, Aug. 19 at 6:30pm CST, as we celebrate the release of THE ATLAS literary magazine, produced annually by the Young Emerging Writers. Event will be outside of Rozz-Tox (masks required for entry to use the facilities). Copies of the new issue will be available for $10, $5 for back issues. You can also pre-order copies of THE ATLAS 16 via our online bookstore.

We are thrilled this event is part of Alternating Currents Festival & to have some light shine on the terrific writing talent we have in the QC. Event will start off with music from YEW staff & interns & the readings will be followed by Memorywerks Musik (the great Dennis Hockaday). Excellent food & drinks available all night c/o the Rozz-Tox team.

Event is free & open, donations appreciated & support youth education programs at MWC. Always a special night, this one promises to be even more so. Join us…
