From a Boston.com article on the inaugural session:
The reading series was started by Molly McGuire and Aaron Devine, both students at UMass Boston's creative writing MFA program. UMass already showcases its writers' work at the Breakwater reading series in Coolidge Corner (which also hosts BU and Emerson students), but Write on the Dot is meant to bridge the gap between UMass Boston and the Dorchester community. "UMass is unique in that it's a commuter school. It's in Dorchester, but it's on that peninsula …It feels a little disconnected from the community sometimes," said Devine, who added that the university already has many programs that partner with Boston Public Schools and the public library to create that connection.This time around, it's Sam Cha, Aaron Devine, Johnny Diaz, Mariya "Morie" Deykute, and Christopher Kain.
