MFA in Creative Writing & Poetics

Gamut: A Literary Series


Gamut is a literary series that connects creative and diverse voices from the UW Bothell MFA in Creative Writing & Poetics community. The series features readings by current students, alumni, and faculty. The name refers to the program’s interdisciplinary nature, which encourages and challenges students to experiment between genres and mediums, resulting in a wide range of creative works. 

Gamut was founded in 2019 by Woogee Bae (MFA, 2019), with Ashley Noelle (MFA, 2020) and Matt Porter (MFA, 2020) while they were candidates in the MFA in Creative Writing and Poetics program.

Gamut took its first steps with the hospitality of Open Books: A Poetry Emporium which hosted the initial three events of its inaugural year (2019-2020). The fourth and final reading of Gamut’s first year was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

For 2020-2021, Gamut is adding three new members to its curatorial team, MFA candidates Scott Bentley, Julie Voss, and Cliff Watson. Bae, Noelle, and Porter will continue as Alumni Advisors.

Alumni and current students who are interested in participating in future readings can add their email to the readers’ list by signing up here.
