Teenagers from Dorchester will show off their literary prowess Tuesday night at Write on the DOT's Teen Writer Showcase.
The event will bring together some well-known names and some new ones, for a night of prose and poetry told by local youths.
There will also be an open mic Tuesday, to give audience members a chance to get up on the stage and display some of their creative works.
The Write on the DOT Reading Series is a collaboration between University of Massachusetts Boston students and Dorchester based authors, working to bridge the gap between the school and the community.
Tuesday’s event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Fields Corner branch of the Boston Public Library.
