Quinsigamond Community College students shared their creative writing work at the Jacob Edwards Library on Dec. 12.
Adjunct Professor MaryKate McMaster said this is the second year her students have read at the library in Southbridge. This year the five students in her English 202: Creative Writing class were able to read an example of their poetry, a short fiction story and an example of creative non-fiction.
“The students worked very hard and practiced a lot,” she said. “We were able to do a lot of peer-editing in class with this group, and the students also wrote plays during the semester. It was great for them to have this public exposure and have a reading.”
Ms. McMaster thanked Library Director Margaret Morrissey for collaborating with her on the project, and Victor Somma, Assistant Vice President of Extended Campuses Operations at QCC, for attending the event both years.
She said she hopes to continue to have student readings in the future.
