I forgot to mention that April 6th is also the beginning of Passover, another reason for rescheduling. And I wouldn't be surprised if there are other holidays in other religions at this time. May your holidays bring you what you're seeking from them. See you on the 13th!

Hello First Friday people, old and new. Because April 6 is Good Friday, an important holiday for many people, we're postponing First Friday until April 13, 6:30 p.m. in Woolson House on the Rollins campus. Please bring about 15 copies of a late-stage draft of poetry or prose to share. Each writer will have 10 minutes to read and receive feedback. It's exciting to think that Philip Deaver will be back in his chair in just a few months, and in the meantime I'll continue to do my best to substitute. Best wishes to all of you. I hope to see you on the 13th. Kathryn
