The Graduate Literature Association presents:
"You're All Going to Die" Anything Goes and Poetry or Prose Night
Thursday, 8 pm on September 3rd, at Cafe Du Soleil (200 Fillmore Street).

Message from Ned B., President of the GLA and event host:
Save the date and help me fill this place out. Here's a breakdown of what to keep in mind :::

Signups will be that night. You have until 7:45pm to signup or until we have 24 total readers for the night. So, if you want to read, you'd better get there early...

...and, yes, we're going to start promptly at 8pm. PROMPTLY AT 8pm. It'll give us more time to hang out and less time reading late into the night.
  • If you're going to read, keep it under 5 MINUTES long. That's right: 5 MINUTES. WE WILL TIME YOU. And we will hug you when we have to stop you.
  • As far as reading goes, you can bring anything you want to read. It doesn't have to be poetry. It doesn't have to be yours. You can bring the packaging label for your toilet paper and read that. It doesn't matter. BUT DO IT FULL OUT.
  • You don't have to read anything. You are just as welcome to sit back, relax, clap at what you love and hiss at what you hate.
  • Clapping and hissing will be encouraged.
  • If you have some musical instruments you'd like to bring and play, do it.
IMPORTANT ::: DON'T TAKE YOURSELF SO SERIOUSLY. Come and have fun. The end. Remember. Someday, we won't exist and neither will the English language. If you choose to take yourself seriously, then take yourself so seriously that it's stupid. Ridiculousness is encouraged.

That's pretty much it... and here's the rundown of information for the night again:

Where: Cafe Du Soleil @ 200 Fillmore Street.
When: Thursday, September 3rd @ 8pm (sign-ups will start before that)

"You're Going to Die" there when it happens.
