Announcing the Hearthside Readers and Writers Series

December 18, 2010 — Leave a comment

I’m pretty psyched about this new development, which started with a phone call from “George Carlin, not the dead comedian,” who wanted some guidance in launching a venue for writers and readers at the awesome South Bend pub, Fiddler’s Hearth. We exchanged emails, set up a meeting, and we’re off an running starting in January. If you’re in the area, please come!


IUSB Creative Writing is partnering with Fiddler’s Hearth to offer a monthly opportunity to read or listen to fellow writers at an open mic, followed by a reading from a featured author. Sign up to be a part of the first event on Sunday, Jan. 9, 2011! (Or just come check it out!)

Hearthside Readers and Writers Series
Brought to you by Fiddler’s Hearth
Hosted by Clayton T. Michaels – IUSB Creative Writing Faculty/Pushcart-nominated author of Watermark (Winner of the 2010 qarrtsiluini chapbook contest)

Attention creative writers and other lovers of the literary arts!
Announcing the Hearthside Readers and Writers Series!

Fiddler’s Hearth – Downtown South Bend
The second Sunday of every month from 2:00-3:30, staring January 9.

Are you looking for a venue in which to share your writing? Looking for local writers to help you develop your craft? Looking for a place to listen to writers—poetry, fiction or non-fiction, developing or established—read their work?

The Hearthside Readers and Writers Series will feature:
– an open stage (sign-up in advance) where folks can both read their own work and share work from other writers that moves or inspires them
– a reading/question-and-answer session with a featured writer from the area
– breakout workshop sessions for those who want feedback from other writers on their works-in-progress

To sign-up for the open stage, or for more information about the Hearthside Readers and Writers Series, email
