NER Out Loud and S'more Readings reception

  • Mahaney Center for the Arts Middlebury, VT (map)

“NER Out Loud” is a collaboration of the New England Review, the Mahaney Center for the Arts, and Oratory Now. In the tradition of NPR’s “Selected Shorts,” Middlebury student actors and orators read selections from the New England Review literary magazine in a live performance. Students present poems, memoir, and short fiction from the pages of NER in the Mahaney Center for the Arts, lending their voices to the work on the page and bringing it to life for an audience of students, faculty, and community members.

The “Out Loud” readers include Ellen Colton ’19 (reading Alison Stagner’s “Midnight”), Josh Espy ’17 (reading Maciej Milkowski’s “The Week of German Cinema”), Jabari Matthew ’17 (reading Cortney Lamar Charleston’s “Still Life…”), Steven Medina ’17 (reading Alex McElroy’s “Endure”), Melanie Rivera ’19 (reading Alia Volz’s “Chasing Arrows”), and Nia Robinson ’19 (reading Franny Choi’s “The Price of Rain”).

Student writers whose work has been published in student publications Blackbird, Frame, Middlebury Geographic, and Translingual will be featured at the “S’More Readings” reception.
