Campion Literary Society Hosts Open Reading


This article was never published, but here’s a review on an open reading hosted by King’s College’s Campion Literary Society


Members of the Campion Literary Society met this past Thursday to share poetry, short stories and articles during an open reading.

The Campion Society members plan to gather regularly to hold open readings as well as writing workshops.  All events will take place on Thursdays and will be open to all King’s students.

Last Thursday’s event began at 7 p.m., but Campion Society Treasurer Jenel Gronkowski said that for the sake of convenience the group will try to hold its open readings earlier in the day.

“We know later meetings are rough on commuters,” Gronkowski said.

The open readings will all hold a common theme.  In accordance with Valentine’s Day, last week’s theme was love.

Readers at the event share mostly their own work, but works published by other writers are also sometimes shared.  Audience members will then give the reader their reactions, providing feedback which could improve writing skills.  More often than not, the reader will offer some kind of a background to the piece they are about to share.

The Campion Society announces their upcoming open readings and writing workshops on the campus calendar.  If you’d like to attend, or find out the theme for the next reading, contact President Sarah Scinto.
