New Rivers Press is partnering with MSUM Literary Magazine, Red Weather to host a Literary Scavenger Hunt and Open Mic Night for the students of MSUM.
Beginning at 2pm on Monday, November 6th Red Weather and New Rivers Press will be hosting a campus-wide scavenger hunt for free literary goodies! Students are encouraged to pick a literary item—their favorite book or a piece of their own original work—and hide it somewhere around campus to be found by other participants in the hunt. They may hide their special item wherever they please, but they must take a photo of the item in its place and post it on Instagram with the hashtag: #RWScavengerHunt. The item will then be up for grabs! Lucky hunters who find a literary treasure are then asked to re-post the item to their own Instagram announcing that it has been found. Finally, the finder is asked to replace the item with an item of their own in a spot of their choosing. (This is not mandatory but makes the hunt a little more interesting!)
The hunt will end at 6 PM when the participants, as well as others on campus, are invited to join NRP and Red Weather in the Sun Garden Lounge located in the CMU! There will be spoken poetry, music and other performances by MSUM students, staff, and faculty!
Let us know if you think we should do other events like this, on the MSUM campus or in the Fargo-Moorhead area in the comments.
