Professional Writing students hold coffeehouse event for campus

Penn State Berks will be host its second coffee house event of the semester on Wednesday, December 5, 2012, at 1 p.m. in the Penn State Room of the Perkins Student Center. This event is open to students, faculty, and staff, and light refreshments will be served.

Coffee house events are for students, faculty, and staff who want to read their personal short stories or poems or to perform with their musical instruments.

This event was organized by Professional Writing majors Heather Hussman and Brittany Specht. They have already held a successful coffeehouse event earlier this semester to support the National Day of Writing, which brought together a full house of students, faculty and staff who shared their literary work.

Hussman and Specht are currently working on publishing an online literary magazine for the college, titled, “Shadows of Birds” (and Other Alate Things), which will be released soon.
