WELLESLEY, Mass. -- “Untyped” is an annual collaborative project sponsored by GenerAsians, the Asian/ Asian American magazine, and Ethos Woman, the literary magazine of Ethos, the association of black students. The event celebrates diversity through spoken word and poetry readings.

“Untyped” will be presented this year on Saturday, Nov. 22, at 8 pm in Schneider Student Center. The poetry event aims to provide students with the opportunity to display their creativity and talent while finding
inspiration from those who have established themselves in the arts. The sponsors hope the event will also serve an educational role on campus by dispelling stereotypes through literary expression.

This year’s event will feature spoken word poetry by Yellow Rage and Giles Li as well as student artists presenting original works. For more information, e-mail untyped@wellesley.edu.

Since 1875, Wellesley College has been a leader in providing an excellent liberal-arts education for women who will make a difference in the world. Its 500-acre campus near Boston is home to 2,300 undergraduate students from all 50 states and 68 countries.
