Reading Matters

Poet to read and talk about creative process

Poet Metta-Sama Melvin will read from her work and talk about the creative process on Wednesday, April 6, at 7 p.m., in Tuttle Dining Room on the campus of Winthrop University in Rock Hill.

Melvin’s reading and talk are part of the Creative Writers Reading Series, hosted by the Wintrhop University Department of English.

Melvin is director of creative writing at Salem College and the author of two collections of poetry, “Nocturne Trio,” and “South of Here.” Her latest chapbook is “The Year We Turned Dragon.”

Dustin Hoffman of the English faculty began the reading series last fall, and he hopes to bring a variety of writers to the campus to encourage students and others to participate in the creative writing community.

The series is sponsored by the Humanities Council of South Carolina.

The reading and talk are free and open to the public.
