Fantastic Fiction!, an event that featured nine Lakeland College writing students reading this semester’s best work to peers, family members and friends, lived up to its name earlier this week.

“If you haven’t done this before, it’s not easy,” Lakeland Professor of Writing Jeff Elzinga said about reading one’s work out loud in front of others.

Every detail of the event, which took place at the newly named 1862 Lounge (formerly The Pub), was organized by Elzinga’s advanced fiction writing students.

Ben Wilks, a senior writing major, served as the master of ceremonies and got the ball rolling with an excerpt from his short story, “The Lion of the West.”

Austin Anderson read “Sandwiches and Countertops,” Mayce Bacon read “The Cat is a Hat,” Katie Amundsen read “Day Dream,” Danielle Livingston read “Solitary,” Veronika Lau read “In Loving Memory of Jessica Rite,” Angela Herbst read “Once Broken,” Amanda Smith read “Homeless” and Heather Hartmann read “High Tides Below.”

The Fantastic Fiction! event concluded with an open mic session, during which seven people shared their writing.
