Let's organize an SMC MFA Alumni Team and showcase our literary skills at SPD’s “Literary” Pub Quiz! All alums are welcome! Let's mix!
WE'RE STILL LOOKING FOR A FEW TEAM MEMBERS!
On Wednesday, November 6th, at the Stork Club in Oakland, Bay Area writers and readers will gather for the first of a series of literary-themed pub quiz nights, attempting to prove the old adage that writers only get smarter when they walk into a bar. Participants will compete for valuable as well as entirely abstract prizes as part of a fundraiser for Small Press Distribution, the Berkeley-based non-profit book distributor of underground poetry and fiction books. SPD makes it possible for the work of thousands of authors and hundreds of independent publishers to reach their readers. Categories for the quiz may include—we stress “may” since the actual questions remain a closely guarded secret—contemporary poetry, classics, famous typewriters, literary suicides, and many another fun topic.
Prizes for the winning team members are being donated by Quo Vadis (makers of the extra-fine Habana notebook), Pilot Pens, and SPD.
Event starts at 7pm sharp and goes through 9pm. $10 at the door gets you in the bar and in the quiz!
