FARMINGTON — Ten UMF seniors will read from their original works in poetry, fiction and nonfiction at University of Maine at Farmington’s Creative Writing Senior Reading. This free and open-to-the-public event will begin at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, in The Landing in the UMF Olsen Student Center.

Each student’s reading will draw from his/her portfolio created as a senior capstone project in UMF’s creative writing program. A culmination of each student’s creative writing accomplishments during their time at UMF, portfolios consist of the student’s best writing, an artist statement and a self-assessment of their work.

Tyler Noyes of Farmington and Katie Marshall of Dover Foxcroft are two of 10 students that will read from their work.

Graduates of the UMF creative writing program go on to graduate school or work as editors, journalists, filmmakers, educators, published authors and in the fields of graphic design, marketing and many others. The senior reading is sponsored by the UMF Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program.
