Literary Arts Festival (& Mary Gaitskill Reading): Extra Credit

City Tech’s 35th Annual Literary Arts Festival is being held between 5:30 – 7:30 pm on Thursday, March 24 in the Voorhees Theater (186 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201).  As the Festival’s OpenLab page denotes, the event will include readings from students, faculty, and writer Mary Gaitskill (best known to most of us as the author of “The Other Place”).

I will offer extra credit (a letter grade bump on your lowest response paper…a D becomes a C, a C becomes a B and so forth) to anyone who attends and writes a coherent, thoughtful response paper that addresses the following points:

  1. Summary of the entire event (beyond what I could learn from a playbill/lineup)
  2. Critique of the evening
  3. Short musing on the weirdest part of the Festival (something that surprised you, made you pause, had you laughing/grimacing, etc.)

Extra credit response papers should be emailed to me by 3PM on Sunday, March 27.
