In-world Reading this Saturday!

Fellow Quillian, Sherry D. Ramsey (Luta Lassard inSL) will be reading her original short story “Her Money’s Worth” this Saturday evening (Saturday, January 15th at 6pm slt).  This story originally appeared in Airborne, The Speculative Elements Vol 2. published by Third Person Press.

This is the fourth of our new monthly events, occurring on the third Saturday of each month at 6pmSLT (9pmET/6pmPT).

The reading will be recorded for use in our upcoming Quillian Podcast, but you’re urged to attend now as the podcast won’t be available for a few months yet.

The reading will occur in the Workshop building, on the second floor beside the traditional meeting circle.  The reading is a voice event, so attendees are encouraged to come with their “ears on” and their microphones off.  Since the event is also being recorded, we request that you refrain from using audio ‘gestures’ or other devices that create ambient noise.
