RISE authors to read at Toadstool Bookshop in Milford

NASHUA – Members of the creative writing classes at the Rivier Institute for Senior Education at Rivier University will read from their annually published journal, “Dawn, The Literary Journal of RISE,” at the Toadstool Bookshop in Lorden Plaza, 614 Nashua St., Route 101A, Milford, at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 22.

Copies of “Dawn” will be available for $6, and the authors will be available to add autographs and inscriptions.

Writing memoirs for family members is “usually how we all begin,” Helen Jackman, editor-in-chief for the 2014-15 edition of “Dawn,” said of the passion for writing among RISE members.

This year’s magazine tops out at an impressive 158 pages and features the prose and poetry of 39 authors, the majority of whom submitted three pieces each.

The journal is divided into three sections: fiction, nonfiction and poetry. The nonfiction section, Jackman said, is almost 100 percent memoir writing. A short biographical sketch of each author appears in the back of the journal and tells of the varied backgrounds and careers of each author.

The magazine began in 2000 as a showcase for the work of authors in the RISE creative writing classes. “Dawn” is published annually in the fall, and is being sold off campus for the third year in a row.
