Geisel Library, Seuss Room

Taken from the sci-fi aesthetics of UC San Diego’s iconic Geisel Library building, the UC San Diego Library is hosting a written/spoken word event: Short Tales from the Mothership!

Writers should send fantasy or science fiction pieces of no more than 250 words to spaulson@ucsd.edu by Friday, October 13. At the event you will have the opportunity to read your entry or have it read aloud for you. All are welcome to come listen to these short stories from the beyond!

Short Tales from the Mothership is the third meeting of our micro-fiction project. We’ll identify further writing goals and look for future co-hosts that evening— but, mostly, we’ll be celebrating an elegant genre by listening to short tales from fellow futurists, time-travelers, inventors, artists, and writers. This evening is inspired by the short postcard stories that magazine editor George Hay encouraged in the 1970’s. He dared such authors as Arthur C. Clarke to send sci-fi stories that easily fit onto a postcard.

Otherworldly libations from our refreshment laboratory will be served along with live Theremin & synthesizer musical interludes.

This event, hosted by the UC San Diego Library in partnership with The Writing + Critical Expression Hub at the Teaching + Learning Commons, is free and open to the public. Questions and general inquiries can be directed to Scott Paulson at spaulson@ucsd.edu or (858) 822-5758.
