Through the University of Houston's literary journal Gulf Coast, audiences around the world can experience the poetry and fiction of emerging authors.

Houstonians, however, have the benefit of hearing works straight from the writers' mouths during the monthly Gulf Coast Reading Series. During its 2010-2011 season, the series will introduce Houstonians to 21 talented students from UH's acclaimed Creative Writing Program. All readings are free and presented at Brazos Bookstore.

"The Gulf Coast Reading Series offers residents an opportunity to hear some of the best young writers read their work," said J. Kastely, director of the UH Creative Writing Program. "The series takes place in an intimate setting, and it is fun to be part of the audience. It epitomizes what a literary community can be."

Readings begin at 7 PM
Feb. 11: Chuck Carlisle, Ryler Dustin, Quincy Martin
