UVA students will share their poetry, flash fiction, and stand-up comedy during this Open Mic Night sponsored by the Dec. This event is free and open to the public.
The Declaration—or as the kids refer to us, the Dec—is a biweekly, tabloid-format student newsmagazine published at the University of Virginia. Founded in 1973, and passing through the hot little hands of many an editorial staff in the years since then, the Dec is devoted to cultural critique by way of movie and album reviews, tracts of creative fiction and non-fiction, political analysis, and the occasional harangue. Our writing varies from hard news to soft satire and everything in between.
