Emerging writers to read at Intermedia Arts

THE WEDGE — Thirteen emerging writers from the Twin Cities will read their works in poetry and prose today and Wednesday at Intermedia Arts.

The readings bring to a close Intermedia’s 2007 Writer-to-Writer mentorship series, which connected three established writers with a baker’s dozen of talented newcomers. The 2007 mentors were fiction writer Anya Achtenburg, spoken word artist Louis Alemayehu and poet Jude Nutter.

Readings on both nights are 7 p.m. at Intermedia Arts, 2822 Lyndale Ave. S. There is a suggested donation of $5.
