Over the past few years, Ivy Hall and SCAD's writing program have brought some real heavyweights to the city (Chuck Klosterman, Andre Dubus III, and Sandra Beasley, to name a few). With their new Potlatch series, Ivy Hall and SCAD draw their focus inside the perimeter and bring Atlanta's literary talent center stage. The first of these readings will take place this Friday evening, with readings from Amy McDaniel (HTMLGiant, the Solar Anus Reading Series) and Bruce Covey (What's New In Poetry, Coconut Books).
Open to fiction, poetry, and non-fiction writers alike, the Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Program's facilitated group is tailored for serious writers looking for a literary workshop to shape up their work and keep them focused. Suggested donation of $5.
Christal Presley shares her story of growing up under the shadow of her father's post-traumatic stress syndrome. Her book Thirty Days with My Father is a telling tale of her development and her choice to work help her father work through his disorder.

An open-mic opportunity for every kind of storyteller with true tales to tell. Seven minutes onstage for those who sign up and have non-fictional stories to share. The evening's suggested theme is "trouble."
Nothing says "romance" quite like "battle of the sexes" - at least, not in Write Club's book. Join the the ruffian league known as Write Club Atlanta for its next round of head-to-head bouts. This evening's readers, including Bill Taft, Bobbin Wages, and Kat Greene, will face off for a "GVSB"-themed evening, tackling such subjects as Return vs. Leave, Man vs. Woman, and Whisper vs. Shout. Pay what you can at the door, $10-$20.
True Story! returns to Decatur with readings from Philip Gerard, Brooke Hatfield, and yours truly. Together, this trio of literary misfits will share true tales and some tokens from life's misadventures.
