RC

Writers convene

in

Greene

BY KRISTIN PALM
THINK of it as Paris in the 1920s or New
York in this decade without the cocaine or
the pretensions. Ann Arbor may not have
that cosmopolitan feel, but the Residential
College Writers do attempt to create the
same sense of community fostered by the
hip authors hanging out in these metro ar-
eas. The RC Writers is a relatively new
group which, according to co-founder and
RC senior Danny Oko, is expanding, im-
proving and serving as a sounding board for
authors of all types.
The group initially formed three years

ago when an RC professor suggested to Nick
Petri, a creative writing student who was
then a first-year student, that some students
should start an RC literary magazine. Petri
grooved on the idea, passed the word along
to Oko and the end result was Backwords,
followed the next year by Clairvoyant
Pizza. But the pair, recognizing the need for
aspiring writers to not only read each others'
work, but to share it on a more intimate
level, did not stop with literary journals fea-
turing funky titles.
Instead, they began a series of poetry
readings and established a writers' support
group which has, on at least one occasion,

been referred to as Writers Anonymous. The
group is based on the assumption that writ-
ing is indeed an addiction and one of the
group's goals is to help writers escape the
isolation inherent in the nature of their craft.
"Art is a social phenomenon and it can-
not exist in a vacuum," Oko said. "There is
this idea that it can be a little less lonely."
Therefore, the RC Writers meet in East
Quad's Greene Lounge at 2 p.m. every Sun-
day to share works, critique writing, listen to
dialogue or, according to group member
Chris Prescott, just "be writerly."
"You don't have to say anything,"
Prescott said. "You can just come." This
same philosophy holds true for the magazine

and all other segments of the organization,
and RC students aren't the only ones invited
to take part.
"If you can read, you can be a part of our
group," Oko said.
RC Writers will see the results of the
work they have done so far this semester in
East Quad room 126 Sunday night as mem-
bers take the stage for the year's first RC
Writers poetry reading. Six or seven students
are scheduled to read, and an open mike for-
mat will follow. Prescott advised to prepare
for experiences that can't be transcribed on
paper since some performance poetry pieces
are anticipated. T
Oko said the uniqueness of a group like

the RC Writers is in part due to the RC pro-
gram itself, which he describes as an
"immersive process."
"That sort of structure is very nurturing.
It nurtures groups like the RC Writers and
the RC Players." And perhaps groups such
as these will, in turn, nurture some stable
careers.
"Some of these people are going to make
it and we like to think some of these are go-
ing to be some of us," Oko said.
THE RC WRITERS POETRY READING
takes place Sunday night at 8 p.m. in Room
126 of East Quad. Because of the reading,
Writers Anonymous will not meet.
