Friday showcase features UIndy student writers

Folks enjoying the city’s First Friday gallery tour tomorrow should spend some time at the UIndy-affiliated Wheeler Arts Community in Fountain Square, where the Department of English will host another of its periodic “Electrostatic Showcase” literary events.

Highlights will include readings by creative writing students from 6 to 8 p.m. and the launch of the latest edition of Etchings, UIndy’s student-run literary magazine, from 8 to 9 p.m.

From 9 to 10 p.m., three professional writers will read their work, courtesy of UIndy and Vouched Books. Chicago-based James Tadd Adcox has a new novel, Does Not Love, which is set in an alternative Indianapolis. Adam Fleming Petty’s work has appeared in the Millions, the Los Angeles Review of Books, the Christian Courier and Cultural Society. Sarah Suksiri’s work has appeared in Sonora Review, The Mackinac, Necessary Fiction and elsewhere.

The Electrostatic Showcases, which take their name from the industrial painting that took place in the Wheeler building decades ago, give UIndy students a chance to present their writing publicly and interact with professional writers. The Wheeler Arts Community is at 1035 Sanders St., west of Shelby Street and south of Morris Street in Fountain Square.
