Thursday nights offer a special tradition for creative writers on Stetson University's campus.
Since 1991, those who appreciate the language arts have come out at night to listen or to perform poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and music. Uncouth Hour also has attracted the digital and fine arts community to share the experience.
First-year to senior students of all majors come out to meet other students, to be entertained, and even to participate. Students typically share poetry, prose, and music of their own or of someone else's. However, any "act" is welcome.
For approximately an hour or more each week, on Thursdays at 9:00 pm, writers and artists of all ages and interests share their work.
Uncouth Hour meets in Allen Hall at 9:00 pm. Students receive Cultural Event Credit for each Uncouth Hour they attend.
Uncouth Hour is sponsored by Stetson's student literary magazine, Touchstone
