A day before they graduate from the University of Missouri–St. Louis with an MFA in creative writing, six students will read their original works. The semiannual MFA Graduate Reading will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday (Dec. 16) in the E. Desmond and Mary Ann Lee Theater at the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center. The reading is free and open to the public.

Students scheduled to read include Katy Gordon, Ray Holmes, Kelli Allen, Amanda Mincher, Angela Phillips and Evan Ringle.

The MFA in Creative Writing program is part of the Department of English. The program provides opportunities for growth in the writing of fiction and poetry. It also provides practical training in literary editing.

The Touhill is on UMSL’s North Campus, 1 University Blvd. in St. Louis County (63121).
