Readings by the graduating MFA Creative Writing class

Next Words is a reading series and publication produced by CalArts featuring its graduating Creative Writing MFAs. Taking place in the spring at venues across Los Angeles—bookstores, art spaces, and even a former City Hall—it culminates in a final showcase at REDCAT. This year's anthology, titled Running Moon, will also be available for purchase—a selection of fiction, poetry, nonfiction and hybrid genres curated and edited by the students.  

Followed by an open-bar reception, the showcase offers an opportunity to experience work that is uniquely CalArts—the results of a writing program housed within an art school.

This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required due to limited seating. Call the REDCAT box office to make your reservation at 213-237-2800. For more information about CalArts' unique interdisciplinary MFA Creative Writing Program, visit

This event is hosted by CalArts' School of Critical Studies. The 2017 Next Words series and anthology were curated and edited by Julia Nowak, Sophie Reiff, Robert Merritt and Amanda Choo Quan.
