On Tuesday, June 4th, Local Lit @ LOTTA will feature a poignant odd couple of stories about coupling from the minds of two New Haven area writers:
MICHAIL MULVEY, an adjunct instructor of American literature, holds an MFA in creative writing and has had short stories published in literary magazines and journals in the US, the UK, and Ireland. His work has appeared in such publications as Johnny America, Scholars and Rogues, Prole, The Front Porch Review, The Summerset Review, Roadside Fiction, Literary Orphans, and War, Literature and the Arts. He will read, “Tess is her name,” which paints a portrait of an efficiency and its inhabitants.
CAROLYN LUSCH is a writer, bicyclist, urbanist, mother, and longtime Michigander who moved to New Haven two years ago. Before pursuing urban planning she wrote for The Michigan Daily and Groundcover News, and is an enthusiastic participant in local writing groups wherever she finds them. Carolyn will read “Alexandria’s Baby,” short fiction about a woman’s complicated entanglement with a famous writer.
Local Lit @ LOTTA prizes stories with fresh perspectives, bringing writers and literature fans into discourse over unpublished stories and published ones. A critique, facilitated by a member of the Editorial Board, follows each reading and helps attendees dive into deep discussions about the author’s stylistic choices In this way, we seek to emphasize and celebrate the process of writing.
We hope to see you next Tuesday at 7 PM on The Range at LOTTA Studio, 911 Whalley Avenue, New Haven 06515. A suggested donation of $5-10 dollars helps us to maintain the series as a thread in the tapestry of arts events in New Haven.
