Open Mic: Featuring Josh Rathkamp

It is officially Go Time. Classes are churning. Deadlines are looming. New Year’s Resolutions are beginning to lose to pragmatism and habit. Writing professors, faced with the first of many waves of essays, are once again questioning their life choices. And, of course, blog posts are coming fast  leisurely and furious with mild sarcasm now.

Also, there’s this Open Mic thing happening, with Josh Rathkamp as our featured reader.

  • When: Wednesday, February 15th from 7:00PM to 9:00PM.
  • Where: GCC Main Campus, SU104e.
  • Why: Because all of this has happened before, and it will happen again.
