In addition, we are inviting all students who submitted their work to the Mirabella contest, to participate in an open mic at The Bridge, hosted by long time community member and supporter of the writing community, Patricia Asuncion, on Wednesday, April 28th, 7-9pm.

Copies of the Crossroads VI Teen Anthology will be available at the reading, and available for online purchase on Monday, March 26th.
