FUTURE THINGS ARE COMING >>>

Wrist Magazine provides an outlet for the literary minds of Tacoma, for self-expression and for writers to seek true connection to the masses. Friday night, the magazine will host its first ever literary event, which will take place at Metronome Coffee.

On this evening, at least seven contributors to previous issues of Wrist will read from their works. The event is free and punctuated by the deliciousness that is Metronome's selection of coffee, beer, wine and baked goods. After all, can you really get into the full literary experience without a libation of choice?

Readers will include Nick Stokes, Melissa Thayer, Vince Genna, Darryl Small - local actor in the film Rockabye Deadman that premiered late last year at Washington State History Museum - Titus Burley and Weekly Volcano's own Joshua Swainston.

Why should you get up off your cozy couch and go to this event?

"It's substantial," says Wrist publisher Chris Arthur. "Authors are natural storytellers and the chance of hearing them speak their own words out loud gives a sort of buzz to any listener. It also inspires others to be brave and to write."

Wrist Magazine hopes to launch more coming events, perhaps even more in January.

METRONOME COFFEE, FRIDAY, JAN. 11, 7 P.M., NO COVER, 3518 SIXTH AVE., TACOMA, 253.301.2375
