We at mnartists.org are excited to present the second of this year’s readings celebrating the 2010 mnLIT winners. Monday night’s line-up (an impressive bunch, you’ll notice) will include a mix of prose and poetry — a representative sampling of winners from both the What Light poetry and miniStories flash fiction contests.

Tonight’s readers will include:
Annie Baxter (What Light)
Sandy Beach (What Light)
Colleen Coyne (What Light)
Steven Lang (miniStories)
Alison Morse (miniStories)
Tim Nolan (What Light)
Gretchen Rueth (What Light)
Sun Yung Shin (What Light juror)
Connie Wanek (2010 What Light grand prize winner)
About your host for the evening: Jeff Johnson is probably not the Jeff Johnson you went to high school with or the Jeff Johnson who fixes your car or that one Jeff Johnson who used to date your sister until she found out about his credit history. He’s definitely not the politician Jeff Johnson. This Jeff Johnson, who lives in Minneapolis with at least 100 other Jeff Johnsons, is a former magazine editor whose work has appeared in such journals as Intro and The Iowa Review. He was also last year’s What Light poetry contest’s grand prize winner.
