Reading is Sexy

Every fall semester, around mid-October, thread hosts their "Reading is Sexy" event in celebration of the opening of the submission period for the newest volume. At this event, we take USF volunteer readers, both undergraduate and graduate alike as well as alumni and past thread authors, to share their creative work.


If you are interested in reading at our event, please email your creative work to for approval. All pieces should be 3 pages max* and double spaced. Please mention if your submission is an excerpt from a longer work. If this is the case, send the entire sample, but highlight the part you would be reading at the event. We welcome all genres.


*Exceptions may be made on length depending on the amount of participants and the quality of the work.
