The Literary Arts Festival is Coming!

Save the date for this Spring’s Literary Arts Festival at City Tech: April 10th at 5:30 PM, in the Midway Auditorium.

Can’t wait until then? Get involved sooner! Prof. Caroline Hellman, the Festival’s fearless organizer, is looking for your help. She writes: “I’m building a student volunteer team for the Literary Arts Festival (coming your way Thursday, April 10, 5:30pm, Midway Auditorium), and all students are welcome.  Participation is a rather minimal time commitment; it includes helping to publicize the event, choosing the talent for the evening’s festivities, and being on hand for the Festival to help set up, usher, and lend some welcome school spirit.”

Interested? Please contact her at CHellman AT Citytech.cuny.edu

Without making promises on Prof. Hellman’s behalf, I will note that previous teams of volunteers have sported dashing T-shirts with that year’s Festival’s logo. Could a festive Festival T-shirt be in your future, too?
