Connotations to feature March 27, 2018

Comments Off on Connotations to feature March 27, 2018

Fayetteville High School students run the literary magazine, Connotations,  a collection of student’s writing, art, and photography. Every year, a staff is selected, and for the first semester, staff receive submissions that they consider, or reject, in anonymous review. In the second semester, students then design, and publish the annual magazine.

Some contributors and staff members of Connotations will read selections from the upcoming annual at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 27, 2018, at Nightbird Books in Fayetteville.

Connotations is a testament to the creativity that resides in Fayetteville High School, and has received numerous awards from both the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and the Arkansas Scholastic Press Association.

Connotations is proud to be in its 35th year, and will be publishing the annual magazine this spring.  It will be available for sale later this spring.

The March 27 feature program will be preceded and followed by open-mic sessions, where any audience member can present works of verse or prose, their own or that of others, within a strict 4-minute time limit.

The program as always is free, but donations are welcome. While all ages are welcome, spoken-word performers sometimes use adult themes and words, so parents are cautioned.

The monthly presentation ends by 8:30. The bookstore is open during our time for browsing and purchases.

Comments Off on Dan Bradt Brilliant Poet features February 27, 2018 7 P. M. Nightbird Books, Fayetteville.

Dan Bradt,  a recent New York transplant, will read from his book Bits and Pieces of My Mind.  His poetry delves into philosophical principles, mysterious encounters in the world of romance, joyful pastimes, daring feats of inspirational bravery and strength, silliness, and interlocked oneness of what makes our biological makeup so much different from metallic, programmed robots.

Bradt has a unique perspective on American culture and the world.
