Grist to Host Second Annual "Dead Writers" Fundraiser

UT’s own graduate literary journal Grist: The Journal for Writers is hosting its second annual “Dead Writers” fundraiser at Remedy Coffee House, located at 125 W. Jackson Avenue, in the Old City, on Thursday, 11/14, from 7:00-10:00 pm. Participants should come dressed as their favorite dead writer and be prepared to give a three minute reading of that writer’s work for a chance to win a prize.  Admission is just $5 and includes free ticket to enter for a fabulous raffle.  This event is open to the public.

Founded in 2007, by the graduate students in the Creative Writing Program at The University of Tennessee, Grist: The Journal for Writers is a resource for the discussion and demonstration of the strategies of the writers’ craft. Grist is committed to focusing on the writer’s occupation, and endeavors to articulate and frame the process through which innovative literature is conceived and brought to the page.  For more information about Grist, please visit the journal’s website at
