Our first Fall Reading at Bittersweet Coffeehouse was a huge success! A big thank you to our faculty judges – Jackson Armstrong in Fiction, Nicole Lawrence in Poetry, and Laura Michele Diener in Nonfiction – and to Bittersweet for having us! Also, thank you to all the students, faculty, staff, and supporters who joined us to support Et Cetera and our talented readers.
