Sundays@4 is Baton Rouge Gallery’s most diverse program, offering more than a dozen performances/readings from top-notch local authors, musicians, dance troupes, poets and more. Always free, always open to the public and always starting at 4pm, these intimate engagements give you an up close look at what local writers and performers are working on. Here’s what’s coming up next at Sundays@4:
MAY 3 - Graduating MFA Students from LSU's Creative Writing Program to Read at Sundays@4
The Creative Writing Program at LSU is rigorous but open, with a secure grasp on the literary traditions that matter and a welcoming embrace for the contemporary experiments and new technologies shaping the future. Praised for its generous and collaborative spirit, the program is multi-modal, interdisciplinary, and committed to giving students an opportunity to hone their craft as writers of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and hybrid genres while also offering chances to study drama and screenwriting, build web-based applications, and work on translations in a supportive community in the context of a rich culture and an inspiring history.
Its MFA program (under the direction of McElveen Professor in English, Laura Mullen), is ranked in the top 25 nationally, is a standout for its generous funding for all admitted students, and its remarkable alumni are among the most highly regarded writers and screenwriters and editors working today.
As always, Sundays@4 presentations are free and open to the public and begin at 4 p.m.
