The Odd Couple, the 13th Annual Concordia English Graduate Colloquium, presents Oddities, Means and Ends, hosted by Emcee Puns-a-lot/Churchmaster C.
Join us at Kafein for our featured readings in poetry and prose, including a reading by Poet Laureate of Toronto and The Odd Couple’s keynote speaker, George Elliott Clarke. We will also have readings from students from Concordia and other universities, including Rachel Burlock, Carousel Calvo, Caterina Incisa, Denise Leitão, Mona’a Malik, Jess Nicol, Natascha Simard, and Caitlyn Spencer.
The evening will close with an hour of open mic, so bring your best work in poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and convoluted yet alliterative academic jargon! Open mic sign-up will be at the event. Attendance is free and open to all.
Readings begin at 8:30 sharp. Open mic begins at 10.
